Just looking for a little bit of advice here: I’m getting ready to have my Child Support order reviewed, and see that it asks whether or not the Custodial Parent has children not of our marriage. The original order was put into effect before the new child was born, but since my children have stopped going to day care, I wanted to have it reviewed so I could have that part removed… now I see that I’ll basically have it balance out so that I’ll still be paying the same amount.
My question is this: Why does North Carolina force ME to pay her more because she had another kid with her new husband? I haven’t seen my kids in over a year (they moved to Michigan in March of 2013), she’s choosing to be unemployed (she has a college degree; I do not), and as such I don’t have the financial means with which to visit them (since she won’t bring them down here or even meet halfway for more than 24 hours) or retain any sort of legal assistance to fight the sheer ridiculousness.
Don’t I have any rights as the Non-Custodial Parent in North Carolina?
