Idaho child support amount set without my input
by Landon "VIP" Member..................................
First let me say, I love my son and am very close to him although I now live in Utah and he lives in Idaho. I pay for his tickets when I can for him to come down to stay with me. He is 9. I have always tried to pay support except when I was without a job for several months.
My sons mother is not working at all and is now collecting welfare so I have suddenly been hit with a past due amount of $10,000 in arrears which I have to idea where that amount came from and almost $400 in monthly payments and then told that I have to also pay for health insurance.
I only make $13 and hour and am having a very hard time paying rent, utilities, food and gas as well as my medical insurance and bills. I live with my girlfriend and her daughter and we split the cost and I have been paying my ex $200 a month this year and 2 years ago was paying her about $400 a month when I had a better job.
I don't blow money on junk. I can't even pay my car insurance, my mom has to pay it. Why don't I have any rights to submit my income and cost of insurance before they suddenly set an amount that I owe and I feel I have no hope or recourse.
I can't afford an attorney. I can't continue on this way. Do they take into account that she will not get a job???>????? I am so upset I have no idea where to turn.
