    • I strongly recommend you visit with an experienced Tennessee family law attorney. Discuss the details of your particular situation. A genuine disability can be grounds for a reduction in child support. While very situation is different, I would definitely explore your legal options. While you may be prevented from altering the amount owed, the court could set a reasonable monthly payment amount towards the arrearage and modify the monthly child support amount due moving forward.
