Child Support Hearing


#1

I had a hearing for Child Support on January 8, 2014. I didn’t attend it because I was in the hospital for ten days Beginning January 7, 2014 thru January 17, 2014. I checked the Child Support Enforcement website and logged in…and I see that they had put an order in for a monthly amount and arrears. My attorney had talked to the child support case worker and attorney prior to the day of the hearing and told them what was going on with me. But yet they had put an order in anyways. I am unemployed and I just want to know how can that order be dismiss based on the fact that I was being hospitalized on January 8th?

It sounds like you need to talk to your attorney about what happened that day so you can figure out how to address it. You will likely need to file a motion based on Rule 60 for relief from the order.
