child support while unemployed

How does it work?
Mark's lost her job too, Mark lost his job too, We are worried about providing for his other 3 kids.
I went to the child support website but I couldn't find anything.
Thank you!

Re: child support while unemployed

If Colorado is how I think it is Maria, then any child support would be taken from unemployment benefits as long as they are being received.

Boy oh boy he is only getting $470 a week, this is really going to stink!
Can he get a part time job, like pizza? and if so do u know how many hours can he work without losing his unemployment benefits.
He is actively looking, he's worked very hard on his resume!

Re: child support while unemployed

Without meaning to trash don's response, but do you guys have a citizen's advice centre or similar?

A free phone number where you can get legal advice on stuff like this. Also (again I only know about the UK), but the government should have lots of free leaflets etc that will tell you what you need to do.

I'm not advising this because I don't think you should be asking here, but in all honesty, it's probably slightly more um... reliable.

I've been on forums long enough to know that sometimes people have "knowledge" that isn't entirely accurate.

I feel like I'm treading on eggshells here, but I feel it's important enough to mention.

Re: child support while unemployed

Unless the child support was taken out of Mark's pay before he got it, there's no reason UE would even know about the support agreement to take it out. I have a friend who's ex was laid off, he appealed to the court and got his child support reduced, of course my friend was employed when this happened. And it was in NH, things may be different in CO.

With both of them laid off, it's really difficult to say what would happen. Is the relationship amiable enough for them to make an agreement on their own? If not, he will probably need to file for an amendment to the support agreement.

The child support was coming out of his check automatically, is that what you mean?
I am sorry I am new to all this, I wish there was an agency we could turn to for help like "oficina de los consumidores" in Spain but unfortunately I don't think there is such thing here in the US Huge.. and if there is I will be happy to hear where!
The relationship between them has always been rocky, he did tell her he didn't have a job but they don't speak much, what kind of agreement are we talking about? You mean like paying her xx amount and document it so when Mark does get a job they don't back charge him as much?
Thanks Lisa.. I appreciate all your help.
You guys are like my family!

Re: child support while unemployed

I hope you are on the way to an answer, it sounds like he should immediately contact the child support division of the courts, to get on their calendar for a hearing or a meeting to discuss modifications to the payment schedule. This is happening all over the country, of course....Good luck - these are sure some rough times ...
