1. By law, you must tell your child support agency within ten (10) days if you lose your job, if your income changes, or if you get a new job. These new circumstances will not change your court ordered payment amounts until a court revises your order. 2. Your court order for support continues after a job loss--only a court can change an order. 3. If child support payments were taken out of your paycheck, child support payments will now be withheld from your Unemployment Insurance checks. 4. If your job loss is expected to last longer than 6 to 8 weeks, you can ask to have your court order reviewed for a possible change.
