Jacksonville, NC asked in Child Support for North Carolina

Q: I am in the middle of doing my child support modification. I am unsure of things

I have two mother of children. When the second child support order went in they didn’t include the first one and I am not sure how to word that in my modification. I lost my job since the hurricane and recently got behind. I got a court appointed laywer and he said I needed to do a modification. I have the mothers addresses and the actual amount I am to pay each month but not the original file date and how to word about combining the two

A: here is the form: https://www.nccourts.gov/assets/documents/forms/cv600-en.pdf?p6P9vXt4PG5WShmWZ_EbNOLmSagI8yw_

the change of circumstances are that 1) credit for child support payments made to child from another relationship were not included in the ordered amount, and 2) loss of employment.

for the date of the previous order, you need to see the court file. Go to the court house in the county where the action is pending and ask the clerk of court to either look up the date for you, or let you see the file so you can get the date.
