The changes to the Child Support Laws (becoming effective 1/1/16) include an allowable deduction for student loan debt. This is pretty significant because courts have pretty much told folks to take a hike when they ask for a reduction in their child support because of their heavy student loan debt. Now things are different. The courts have to allow such deductions, unless they are prepared to make some pretty extraordinary findings, and award a lower child support amount.
