Hi. I wanted to ask what the guidelines were for child support?
I have NEVER been one payment late and do NOT have ANY problem paying child support for our son to my son’s mother.
Recently I lost my job though and now that I am behind she is calling every single week saying that she needs the money. I have opened new credit cards and taken out family loans… everything that I know to do!!!
She is more than welcome to have the money if I had it, but I DON’T! I can’t get any more credit cards opened and can’t pay the ones I did open.
I have gotten another job but I don’t make anything like I was making. I lost this job, I didn’t quit this last job.
I am making 1/3 of what I was making at my last job.
If I paid her what she is owed every week, I would not even have enough left to pay for the gas to get back and forth to work.
I KNOW she needs the money for him, but she just went on a trip to Michigan on a plane and her husband right now makes good money. I realize he has to pay his child support for his kids too(2 from a previous marriage). --They both left their spouses at the time for each other and now they have a little girl too.
PLEASE UNDERSTAND… If I had not just recently lost my job and were having a hard time myself and kids and a wife now too on this end, I would NEVER NEVER NEVER imagine reducing the amount that I pay her.
If I could, I would just move back in with my parents like I did before and pay her what she is awarded from the courts for our son to raise him, but I REALLY don’t want to leave my wife that I have now - I am happy with our marriage and want to keep it.
What can I do short of leaving my wife now to move in with my parents to pay her?
What is the table for child support for one child age 9 from a father making $9.00/hr
I have NEVER had our child support in the last 8 years re-evaluated even though I was just making enough money to pay her because up until the last 2 years I lived with my parents in order to make sure my son was taken care of financially.
What can I do please help.
