Am I able to temporarily modify by child support or alimony during the COVID-19 Crisis? What do I do if my former spouse is attempting to modify child support or alimony?

Generally, there needs to be a substantial change of circumstances that is not contemplated at the time of the entry of the Agreement or Order. The modification of child support must also be in the best interest of the child. Dealing with a furlough, loss of job or decrease in income during Covid-19 is a substantial change in circumstances but is it enough for a modification? Generally, the substantial change also needs to be significant, material, involuntary and permanent in nature. So what does permanent in nature mean and how can you get relief now?
