Because there are many things that can affect the amount of child support that should be paid, it is very important to be diligent whenever there is any change. Changes that can impact child support obligations include the income of either parent, the visitation schedule, child care costs and the cost of medical insurance paid by either parent. If you and the custodial parent resume living together then that can actually be grounds for the support payments to stop. I have seen countless clients attempt a reconciliation of many months to more than a year without seeking legal advice, contacting the Department of Child Support Enforcement or motioning the Court to terminate child support. Once the reconciliation fell apart, the custodial parent, out of spite tried to seek arrearages for those months when the parties lived together. The bottom line, when it comes to child support, it can really pay to seek experienced representation or even a consultation with an attorney.
