Experiencing a decrease in your income is a stressful experience. When you have an obligation to pay spousal support or child support, experiencing a decrease in your income can make this stressful situation even more difficult to address. If you have experienced a decrease in your income and are unable to afford your obligations, it is important to be proactive. If you simply stop paying your obligation, you may be found in violation of a court order and may be subject to various sanctions and enforcement methods, including the potential for the issuance of a warrant for your arrest. Therefore, it is important to be proactive and to consult an experienced matrimonial attorney to alleviate the stress and uncertainty associated with a decrease in your income and the resulting impact on your support obligations.
