Greetings. First, I do not know Ted Shapack. I say that because you are not going to like what I have to say - but the language you wrote I agree with the judge and your wife’s attorney. You are the visiting parent if she has primary custody. Not having an attorney does not mean that you can misconstrue/misunderstand an order and not be responsible.
You are fighting a losing battle in my opinion - make a payment plan and get advice the next time you are not clear on some part of the order. Good luck.
