Am I Paying Too Much In Child Support

I make 15 dollars an hour and after taxes my checks are usually 486/week. Each week $177 is taken out of the 486. So, my checks are around $309. Here are my Bills. I live in the state of Kansas.Rent - $350/month, Car Payment - $408/month

Insurance - $130/month, Electric - $150/month avg.
Gas Company - $125/month avg.Phone - $50/month.

These are just my minimal bills. I am not including anything else at all, not food, gas for my vehicle, toiletries or anything else. My fiance lives with me now and she doesn't work because we are about to have twins in less than a month and she can't work. So, I am bringing in the only income. I just don't understand why I was ordered to pay so much when I don't make enough to even pay my own bill's. Plus, I'm about to have two more babies. Please help. Who do I call, what do I do? I have no money what so ever and I can't afford a lawyer. Is there any pro bono work out there?

Can't modify yet
by: Child Support America Team Member

Your current order needs to be at least three years old before you can request a child support modification. Also CSE can take up to 65 percent of your paycheck. As of right now you are below 40 percent of income being deducted.

CROOKS

I make 7.50 an hour and am ordered to pay a total of 660 a month. that leaves me with about the same a month to live on. Thats law and law says if your not a woman and have a kid and you break up with spouse you get screwed by these crooks! They take a percentage too.

that's why what you give in person don't count they want there share. Go through here and look at the womens questions they get lengthy answers and help the only thing you can do is get a modification every three years. a lot can happen in that time companies go under and in a recession its hard to get back on track and god forbid your a felon your screwed. this is my boat and im not even aloud to see my kids when i try filling for visitation they give the women continuances every-time but you don't show for something its time to go to jail thank you child support for ruining my life!
