Learn About Father's Rights When Child Support Payments are Hurting You Financially
  • As a father, you love your children and want to ensure they are properly cared for. And while you have no problem contributing to the financial well-being of your children through child support payments, you could find that the amount your paying is unfair and hurting you in the process. 

    Child support is calculated by the court based on a formula overseen by state law. However, you may find yourself in a situation where the mandated child support payments are hurting your overall financial well-being. And if you feel that your payments are not properly caring for your child as they should, this can lead to added frustration and stress. Often times you feel that a father's rights are not considered when determining the amount of support you must pay.

    Luckily, you do have a few options. Helping to support your child is necessary, but it should not come at the cost of your own financial health. You still need to pay your own bills and take care of yourself and your family. You need to show the court that your situation warrants a modification of child support. 

    Many fathers fear that courts look disfavorably upon them and always side with the mother. Unfortunately, it does seem that in most cases, the court does side with the mother. And you may be perfectly fine with the mother of your children being the custodial parent. But, this is more than just raising your children, this is about ensuring your own financial well-being and the ability to move on with your life.
