What do I need to do to get an amendment to the final divorce

Customer Question

What do I need to do to get an amendment to the final divorce papers? I turned 62 last June, and I am starting to draw my Social Security as of Jan. 2011. My dependent daughter will also get a check each month until she turns 18, so I want to stop the child support in lieu of the social security.

Who is now paying? What is the current support order?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I am currently paying 150.00 bi-weekly. The Social Security is going to be 768.00/mo.
Expert:  Law Pro replied 6 years ago.
Your paying child support to the other parent?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Yes, it is payroll deduction every 2 weeks.

Then what you need to do is file a motion for modification of the child support asap.

Then during the pendancy or before that modification hearing - file for your social security benefits and for the benefits for your child.

Child support is always modifiable based upon a substantial change in circumstances.

This would certainly be the basis of a substantial change in circumstances.

So you have an old motion to use as an example?
