I’m just … speechless I guess at this point.
Did mediation in December. One of the conditions (not put into the order but I have it on one of the worksheets) for the agreement was that he would pay NC guideline child support. My atty drew up a letter and sent it to his attorney stating the amount and that he needed to start paying. He has given me a couple hundred dollars here and there I think maybe per month, if that, when the total that he SHOULD be paying is THREE TIMES that.
So we have court scheduled for 2/2. My atty sent a note to his atty asking why this can’t be settled when he has already agreed to pay. She returns a note stating that it was because they never received my bank statements for the past three months as required. I told my atty he DID receive them because they were in the HUGE stack of papers required for the financial affidavit but I forwarded them to him YET AGAIN. The STBX did NOT send his three months of bank statements nor did he give any information regarding his 401k … but this doesn’t matter as far as I’m concerned because this has NOTHING to do with child support… at least that’s what I was told. If we go to court next week, a judge isn’t going to say “I need to see your last three months of bank statements”.
So, is this a requirement to settle child support or are they simply using a stall tactic to not pay me the child support that he has already agreed to and that he will inevitably have to pay anyway? Can he use anything in my bank statements to try and get the child support lowered? I barely make ends meet now! My parents help out but they shouldn’t have to! I don’t understand why I’m having to FIGHT to have support paid for his children when he agreed to pay it.
As you can tell, I’m just a tad frustrated. Thanks for the help.
