You should document everything that happens, in case you need it for trial/testimony later, by keeping a “journal” of what happened, who said what, etc. and the date. That way, when it comes time to present a case a trial, you have everything recorded rather than to rely on your memory.
If your child support is being paid by wage withholding, the child support agent will send your employer documentation on how much to take out of your check each pay period and where to send that money. If you don’t earn enough for the wage withholding to pay your full monthly obligation, you are responsible for making up the difference by sending additional payments to centralized collections. You do not get to chose how much will be withheld each pay period.
Yes, even though you are still married to the father, you are still required to pay child support if the child support worksheet, based on your facts and circumstances, determines you owe a monthly obligation.
