When it comes time to partake in a child support hearing, it goes without saying that you may have some questions on your mind. Even though you realize this is something you have to do, it doesn't make it any more enjoyable. In fact, the entire process can be downright stressful.
If you want to remove some of the stress from a child support hearing, the best thing you can do is collect as much knowledge as possible. You can begin by asking a variety of questions, including the following;
-- What happens if the other party does not attend the child support hearing?
-- Is it okay to opt for a phone conference as opposed to meeting in court?
-- What process can you follow if you need to postpone a child support hearing?
-- What happens if a judge does not make a decision in a timely manner?
-- What are your options if you do not live in the state in which the child support hearing is going to take place?
These are just a few of the many questions that may be on your mind as you move closer to your hearing date.
If you are faced with a child support hearing, if you don't know what to do next, it is always a good idea to learn as much as you can. This knowledge will come in handy, ensuring that you are on the right path at all times. The last thing you want to do is go into this process with no clue of what to expect.
