Does child support give HIM legal aid?


#1

Dear hadenuff:

Greetings. No, child support will not provide him with a legal aid attorney (as far as I know) for setting child support. Generally he is able to get an attorney in the event he does not pay for the child support he is ordered to pay for and if there is a possibility for contempt. Best of luck.

Hi,
I sure hope you can help me! I filed for child support with the county last week,and told them I have a support order from NY(it was dismissed w/o predjudice in April’04) They told me they’d be in contact,and I have heard nothing since.
The other day,my husband called me,furious that child support had contacted his job. Well,last night,he emailed me that HE has an atty now,and I would be “hearing from the atty”. I know he cannot afford one on his own,so my question is,does Child support give HIM legal aid to fight child support??
Thanks,
Hadenuff
