Economic Woes and Child Support

While the whole country is suffering from the sluggish economy, men are actually facing a bleaker economic outlook than are women. The unemployment rate for men is at 9.8%, while women have a 7.5% unemployment rate. Additionally, the new jobs being created are in fields which have traditionally favored women. According to the New York Times, it would not be surprising for women to surpass men in the work force within the next few years. As more and more men are losing their jobs and finding new ones hard to come by, child and alimony support payments are becoming harder to make.

According to a survey conducted by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, 39% of their members across the US are reporting an increase in the number of people requesting modifications to their child support agreements. Additionally, the same survey found that 42% of the members polled said there was an increase in alimony agreements being restructured.
