Child Support Arrears Waived If Ex Agrees
I have an 11 year old daughter of whom I do not have custodial custody. I owe arrears in over $50k due to the fact that I never made enough money at my jobs for them to garnish the full payment. So I have been unable to ever catch up on payments and the arrears keep getting bigger with no end in sight. The judge made the payments extremely high for a job corps graduate based on income I have never made in my life. I recently moved to Arizona to have visitation with my daughter, as my ex-husband has kept me away with threats for the past 7 years. And now my situation has changed. I have a new baby now 1 year old. My ex and I have finally come to amicable terms and has said that he will forgive my arrears or most of it if I do all the leg work by getting the documents needed and doing mediation.
I have been unemployed now since my new baby has been born since working would only leave me with $2 to my name after day care expenses and child support garnishment and minimum wage, no one can pay rent with $2. Im serious, $2 is not an exaggeration I did the math. How do I find the documents? Child support division in AZ said they cant send me the forms because I'm the obliger. I have a packet for modification of child support since new baby qualifies for that but modification does not address the arrears. Is there a specific form he needs to sign and notarize to forgive arrears?
