I Can't Afford My Child Support
I make $12.50 an hour. My employee does not allow me to work overtime or anything like that.
When the child was 9 years old we, my fiancé and I, found out that I could possibly be the father. A test proved that was and I am to pay $400 a month and an extra $100 a month in back child support.
I'm not bringing home enough to pay my bills anymore. I wasn't to begin with. Is there any way that I can get this reduced to a lower payment?
I do not see the child because the mother said that it would be too much for him and that it would hurt him mentally. The mother also gave me a letter one-day asking if I had children. Then asking if he could change his last name to that of the guy he calls "dad".
I never responded to any of this because she had the boy write it and meaning she didn't want me to be in contact with him I found it inappropriate to respond. (The above was a phone response to her about me having children.) I then found out that this guy he calls "dad" does visitations with him and has him about half the year. Now why am I paying a full year of child support if she doesn't even have him?
Please help! Being in the "equality state" isn't easy as a man. I can't find anyone to give me any information and having to do side jobs and not seeing MY family is getting hard.
