What Can I Do To Help My Child Support Situation
I was married to my ex wife and we separated and had two children during the marriage. My wife cheated on me and had the second child of which I doubted and so when we went to court I was originally ordered to pay support for both children because when she filed for the divorce she stated that there was no way that the second child could not be mine. I got the paternity test and paid for it out of my pocket and it was determined that this child was not mine. The judge then ordered that I only pay for my son and I was to pay $97 a week which is deducted from my check. I have never missed a payment since ordered to pay however child support is saying that I owe 1250 for back pay and then there is a additional 1,800 or so and child support cannot give me a explanation on why I owe all this money.
In the divorce the judge handled everything and he never once said anything about back pay. I called and requested a review of my case and was supposed to get a call back from child support within 48 hours and it’s been 2 weeks and I have heard nothing. My hands at this point are tied and I do not know what to do. I have no money to pay for a lawyer and feel at this point this is my only point. I love my son and will do anything for him I do not mind paying the money for him but I want my name cleared because this is on my credit report and I cannot get any answers.
