Can the courts change your child support arrangement without you knowing? The courts can technically increase child support payments without consent, but you must know about it beforehand. If the court is monitoring your child support payments, you will be mailed correspondence regarding a child support modification hearing. If you take no action or fail to appear for a hearing, the courts may adjust the payments without your consent.
If one parent refuses to pay child support: By statute, the State of New Jersey can take child support payments directly out of a parent’s paycheck, and send it to the person entitled to receive support on behalf of the child.
