Lafayette, LA asked in Child Support for Louisiana

Q: My child support was instated 3 years ago when the mom was not working. She now has a full time job.

Me (the father) is considered the non custodial parent, I have my daughter a total 12 days out of the month. Child support was initially created when she was 6 months old, and her mother didn’t have a job. Since then, she’s been employed full time 5 days a week, and never reported a change in circumstances, because why would she.

While i’m still making roughly the same income amount as day 1.

Is this a good enough reason to have my payments reviewed and possibly lowered?

I do not want them to go any higher, so i’ve been cautious about starting this process. Help!
