Confused step mother
Well my story is kinda like these others. I married my husband a year ago, he has two children with his ex. I would just like some advice and to see if anyone else knows anything about my situation. My husband has been paying child support for about 8 years now, recently his ex filed for back support from nov. - dec. of 01 and all of 02. We have copies of all the checks he wrote her and when it was coming out of his pay check, but for the years shes asking for we are having trouble getting them because after a certain amount of years they discard things. If there was a court order placed when the divorce went through, and she never filed it with the child support office to get it taken from his check, and he didnt go to the divorce hearing because he was young and stupid, how is he supposed to know how much child support to pay? Does she have to get it filed through the state before he has to pay, or how does that work? Any information would be helpful.
