State Joblessness Up - Child Support Issues

Losing a job means no income and that hits at a several child support issues. And Indiana continues to lose jobs.

The Indianapolis Business Journal reported State joblessness edged up in June, and The Muncie Star Press reports an even higher unemployment rate there: Unemployment hits 11.7 percent.

If you lose your job, this gives you grounds to file a child support modification petition. Do not say that you cannot afford to do this. Failure to pay your child support can lead - probably will - to a contempt affidavit. The ultimate penalty for contempt is jail.

For those needing a child support modification because they have lost their job and who live in Madison or Delaware Counties, please feel free to contact me at 641-7906. My office will work with you on fees.
