Is your child support as ordered too high for you to pay?

Divorce is a process full of frustrations and interpersonal issues. You and your former spouse are probably struggling with the idea of co-parenting after a divorce. If you are paying child support during the divorce proceedings, you may become frustrated with the amount of support when compared to the amount of time you get to spend with your children.
