Child Support and Disability

My ex has my kids 5 days a week. We have 50/50 joint and physical custody. He gets a disability check and gets $600 more for my kids. I'm paying child support. Would that affect his check? Will his benefits get reduced?

Each case is different. You need to make an appointment with social security and bring all documentation

it really depends on whether the courts establish what the financial need is which is on a case by case basis. If the courts establish that the needs exceed the fund then yes, that could affect the check.

This is very complicated and I think you need to start with the lawyer who drew up the settlement agreement and have that person figure out all the ins and outs of this question and the monies. A good lawyer should understand both situations and the disability process and help you get it all sorted out. Prayers for your family! Please post back what you learn how you get it resolved.

Disability payments and child support are complicated because all cases are different. There can be differences in living standards as well as the total income of both parents and also the wording (language) written in the divorce agreement.


For these reasons as well as many other reasons, you need to talk with an attorney and Social Security as well. This could effect the amount of money you are required to pay also so be sure to seek consul soon.
If you cannot afford to pay for legal services, you should contact your local family services office and ask for assistance as this is something that needs attention.
I hope that you and your ex are doing well with your agreements where your children are concerned as their mental and physical health depend on both parents. Good luck to you and your family.
