How To Speed Up The Child Support Modification Process

St. Louis divorce lawyerQuestion:

I filed a modification of child support request through the child support agency several months ago and have yet to receive a response.

Because of my substantial drop in income, thus prompting the modification, I am quickly running out of money to survive and need to have this modified calculation put in place.

What can I do to speed up the child support modification process so I don’t go completely broke while waiting?


I am unable to give you legal advice on divorce. I can give general divorce help for men, though, my knowledge is based on Missouri child support laws where I am licensed to practice.

It appears you have taken all the possible steps you can take to modify your child support payment without involving a mens divorce attorney.

Although attempting to adjust your child support payment through an administrative agency is cheaper than hiring a divorce lawyer to adjust payments through the courts, it can generally take much longer.

Additionally, when the administrative agency calculates your new child support payment, they generally don’t take into account factors that the courts often do, like a proper visitation credit.

Therefore, it is important that when you do hear from the agency that you request a hearing to clarify how the agency reached their new payment.

However, if you are unable to see results from an administrative agency soon, it would be in your best interest to contact a mens divorce attorney to handle the child support modification.

Remember, I am unable to provide you with anything more than divorce tips for men, so please consult with a divorce lawyer in your jurisdiction.
