We have a child support agreement that was agreed upon and submitted through the courts a little less than a year ago for a set amount of money each month. I receive a check this morning for about $350 LESS than what it should be with a note stating that this is all he has right now and will send it as money becomes available. States that “the dollar amount is still to be decided as I am self employed at this time”.
Bull!!! The dollar amount was set back in MARCH and there are no pending changes in child support as far as I can see. I have been served with no papers and the fact that he is self employed is NOT MY PROBLEM!! He QUIT a job that he had where he was making enough money to pay the $479 a month in order to pursue this self employment crap and now he has turned into a deadbeat dad because he can’t get his self employment business off the ground (wow, there’s a shocker!!). Now because of this I cannot pay my rent for the month. I HEAVILY relied on this child support each month in order to make our bills. And now I’m going to be even MORE behind than usual!!! I have called my attorney but they are closed for today. I need some kind of peace of mind as to what my options are right now because my head is swimming and I can’t even see straight. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
