I was forced to go to court for child support because we are on medicaid and food stamps. The sperm donor was cheating on me and left me and his son for the other girl. He never even showed up to court. He was ordered to pay child support at min wage cause he wasnt there to show how much he makes. I only get $170 every month for child support and health insurance. What I dont understand is they have all of his info SSN and place of employment why cant they figure out how much he makes? The judge ordered me to put my son on CHIP but he was denied for it. Cause we are on medicaid. I still have not got the money from my ex. I feel like we got screwed in court. Isnt there some consequence to him for not showing to court? My lawyer is not answering all these questions for me we are looking for a new one as soon as i have the money. I was also told that if I wait a year and if my ex dont show up to his visitation I can take it back to court and get his rights taken away I'm saving for that right now.
