Getting ready for a child support review

Preparing for a child support review can feel overwhelming. However, with the right approach, you can navigate the process smoothly.

A child support review is a formal evaluation of your financial situation to determine if any changes to the amount of support you pay or receive are necessary. It is very important to prepare for a child support review properly.

Gather all necessary documents

Before your child support review, gather important documents such as pay stubs, tax returns, bank statements and any other financial records that show your income and expenses. Having these documents organized and ready will make the review process much easier. Take the time to review your current child support order and understand the terms and conditions. Make note of any changes in your financial situation, such as a change in employment or income.

During the child support review, you will likely have to provide updated financial information to verify your income and expenses. Be honest and thorough when providing this information to ensure an accurate evaluation.

Prepare for the meeting

It is vital to understand the child support review process and what to expect. Familiarize yourself with the timeline, requirements and any forms or documentation that you need to complete. According to the Connecticut Judicial Branch, parents can request child support reviews every three years. If you share custody of your child with another parent, it is important to communicate openly and honestly with them about the child support review.

Be sure to attend the child support review meeting as scheduled. Bring all necessary documents and information, and prepare to answer any questions that may arise during the review. Remember to stay organized and communicate effectively to ensure a successful outcome.
