Another Casualty Of The Recession: Child Support
Correction April 24, 2009
The statistician who provided the statistic used in the introduction to this story now says that number is inaccurate. We said, "In Connecticut, motions to modify [child support or alimony] payments filed by people divorced or divorcing grew by more than 50 percent last year." According to judicial statistician Greg Pac, those motions increased by less than 1 percent, in all family cases. However, Family Court judges and other court workers continue to report pressure in the system from what they believe is the increased volume and complexity of cases in which people have to renegotiate their court-ordered support payments.
