Generally, job loss is supposed to reduce your child support or spousal maintenance obligations. However, this is not always straightforward; hence the need to request for the court to modify the original child support or spousal maintenance agreement. If your request is uncontested, the process can be simple. However, if it is contested, you will have to demonstrate and convince the court that your job loss makes the existing child support or spousal maintenance agreement unfair and unenforceable.
