My child support amount

by Trina
(Ormond Beach, FL)

I have one child with my ex and I pay child support every week. I owe no arrears. I work two jobs and have two other kids that I have living in my home. I am the sole provider and get no other help with my other two kids. I also go to school full time on top of my two jobs. I am receiving food stamps to try and help. I am at a loss because my first job takes exactly half of my paycheck all of a sudden even though my second job takes child support as well.

This means my first child gets more money than my entire family gets to survive and I have no more time to devote to working since I am going to college and working two jobs. What can I get them to do so that they don't take out more than what they should every month for child support...?
