Losing your job or small business is devastating. Especially if you’re also paying child or spousal support. Just remember that you are not alone; this is happening to people in communities all over the country. But there are ways to make adjustments now (and later) so you can continue to make payments, but at a level that is more appropriate given the state of your current income.

In general, keep in mind that any adjustments made to spousal and child support payments will need to go through the court to become enforceable.

First: Be Upfront and Honest

Best Case Scenario: An Agreement On Your Own (in Writing)
