Milana Tepermayster was recently successful in defending a downward modification for child support filed by a father, who purported himself to be disabled. The father filed an application seeking a reduction of his child support obligation alleging an injury sustained at his place of employment. However, in order to prove such reduction is necessary and proper, the Court must find that the father has provided satisfactory proof of his disability and specific factual basis for such modification. In the instant case, the father failed to present credible evidence that his symptoms or condition prevented him from working and that he was unable to pay his child support. As such, the father’s petition was denied and dismissed.
The father who was allowed a reduction in his child support requirement, failed to prove a new injury justified another reduction. This article is brought to you by Larkin, Ingrassia & Tepermayster, LLP.
