What is a guardian ad litem?

Reducing child support when a second family grows

Child support payments can be complex in Pennsylvania, especially when multiple families are involved. For instance, a person may have been ordered to pay after a divorce, gotten remarried, and then began having children as part of that second family. As that family grows and the financial burden increases, that person can ask for the payments to the first family to be reduced, so as to have enough to support the current family.

Bold labels are required.
