My question involves child support in the State of: Virginia
My husband has been paying child support for his 2 children for the past 10 years. He has increased the amount he pays on his own even continuing to pay child care expenses the whole time even though it has been many years since either child has been in child care. He makes about 60,000 a year and the ex makes about 42,000 (this is being conservative). He pays her 428.00 every two weeks. His older son graduated early-June of this year and his ex says he needs to continue paying the same amount because the older son will be living with her while he attends college. My husband does not want to have to go to court and is not sure his legal right to lower child support to just pay for the one child he is now only legally responsible for. What is the best way to handle this? Maybe having a lawyer figure the two incomes in a worksheet? Should he be the one to contact a lawyer and have them send the worksheet to the ex-wife. Your thoughts please?
