As a parent, you probably want what is best for your child. Perhaps you and the other parent were unable to continue in a relationship. Although you might not want to fund the other parent's personal endeavors, supporting your kids financially could be a top priority. Unfortunately, certain life changes can create monetary issues that challenge a person's ability to maintain the current standard of living.
With a previous child support order in place, there could be consequences for missing payments. However, in some cases, such as a loss of income or change in health, you might not have a choice in the matter, potentially prompting a need for an adjustment to the original agreement.
