My 13 yr old daughters father is a dead beat that has never spent a singe day w/ my daughter. He sent her 1 gift in her life & doesn't communicate w/ her at all. Every time I turn around he is trying to lower his child support. He lies to the court & they fall for it. They give him credit for sending $ to other children(how can he send $ to other children when he can't even pay his ordered support?), they give him credit because he says his son lives w/ him, however the grandparents have custody of the child and my daughters father happens to live in the same house because he is a loser. They also allowed him to use $8 an hr as income when his unemployment was twice that(meaning he makes more). They don't make him prove anything and lowered my daughters support down to $150 a month. So basically he doesn't have to be a dad and also isn't made to pay. What can I do besides hire an attorney that I can't afford?
