My friend is in arrears because of being medically terminated from the job and was unable to pay child support for about 6 months until the SSD kicked in. Can the Retro for the children be used to pay off the arrears? and if so do you have to go to court (suffolk county) for modification?

The child will also be receiving retro and that is used to pay off the arrears. Going forward. the childs monthly payment is seen as CS so if you are looking for some of HIS disability on top of the childs payment, typically you are out of luck. Even a stripmall lawyer could win that case.
