This case illustrates the importance of having any modification in child support agreed to by the parties and approved by the court. Too often, the person making the reduced payments acts under the misconception that the reduced payments are legally authorized and is later faced with a contempt complaint and a significant child support arrearage, with the potential of interest and the payment of attorney's fees and costs.
