Child support arrangements are rarely static. Seeing as employment situations change and one's earnings may be altered at any moment, it is often the case that a non-custodial parent may not be able to continue covering the monthly payments that were agreed on or a custodial parent may require more money each month. In such cases, options are available.
For those Rhode Island residents interested in the R&B world, they may have caught news of a recent development involving the singer R. Kelly. R. Kelly was supposedly behind on his child support payments -- $114,000 behind, in fact. According to recent reports, though, the singer was able to pay back the owed child support in full.
Prior to this, there had been some legal tension between R. Kelly and his ex. Recent reports showed that R. Kelly was in arrears with his child support and that his ex had filed a subpoena. Also, she had attempted to hire assistance in recovering the child support payments she claimed to have been owed.
Sometimes, a divorcee may need help recovering child support payments from a spouse that refuses to pay. In such cases, there are a number of child support enforcement options divorcees may choose to seek out. In other cases, non-custodial parents may no longer be able to cover the monthly payments the current child support arrangement requires of them. In these cases, child support modification may be sought and a lowered amount requested. Both cases call for a sound legal strategy so that these requests are made in clear terms and one's financial situation is accurately represented.
