Customer Question

my 19 year old son moved in with me about 5 weeks ago. I am still paying child support to his mother where which he lived, which is automatically deducted from my pay check. I have a court date of 4-19 to modify support, will I be able to get that money back?

Thank you for your question.

I am a lawyer with 25 years experience. While I am not your lawyer and do not represent you, I will endeavor to provide you with legal information through this open and nonconfidential forum.

The court can retroactively modify the support. If the court order relates back to the time that you filed the petition to modify, the court may order the money returned to you
