It depends upon the state you live in and what their laws are regarding modification of child support. In Texas, for example, you would need to file a modification of child support.

How can you get your child support lowered?

You need to ask the prosecutor's office in the county where your case resides, and ask that your support be lowered--but know that this is not easy. You will need to prove that you have an extenuating circumstance that is preventing you from paying your current court ordered obligation. The prosecutor can set up a court hearing and you'll have to discuss your situation with the judge as to why you need the support lowered.


Can child support be obtained in divorce for college student in Illinois?

Not exactly. In Illinois, child support cannot be ordered past the age of majority but "education support" can be.

Can a court uphold a divorce decree where the child support is to stop upon remarriage of the party receiving support?

If the divorce paperwork states that child support ends when or if the person receiving support remarries, then, yes, the support will end as the court has ordered. If you are the payer of the support, you shouldn't even have to go to court to get this enforced. Since it's already written in the divorce order, a simple call to child support services, or whoever handles child support in your state, should get it handled. If you are the receiver of the support, the support will end as previously ordered by the divorce court, and agreed to by you, unless you hire a lawyer and take the other person back to court to get the order adjusted. Remember that the court has already ordered how this situation was to be handled, so it will not adjust a single thing unless you can show some especially compelling reason for the change. If the child has a serious illness or become disabled since the divorce would be a decent reason, but even that may not be enough.

Does non custodial parent pay for school activity's?

It really depends on how the court has structured the support. In the event of a divorce or other court ordered settlement for child support, the non-custodial may have to pay 50% of everything, or just the monthly support. If this is state ordered support (i.e. in the case of paternity issues, where there was no real relationship), the non-custodial parent usually only has to pay monthly support. I would suggest looking into the support documents to determine what needs to be paid.


How soon after a divorce is final does the noncustodial parent have to start paying child support?

Child support normally begins during the process of divorce, not upon divorce. As for payment dates after divorce, the divorce decree (or associated paperwork) should say.
