I filed child support on my daughters dad. we broke up when I was 6 months pregnant. the state would pay for her medical bills for 5 years because I was not married but I had to file for child support. I told him this and he got angry, I did it anyway. he made more money than I did. fast forward 6 years. I got into a bad relationship and had to give custody to my daughters dad. he turned around that day and filed for child support although he knew I had to quiet my job and was in an abusive relationship I was trying to get out of. I lost touch with my kids and family for 7 years. know that I have found my family he re instated the child support. smh, can I get back on my feet first. I have been jobless, no family, homeless.

That is how it goes, Dana. My friend has total custody of her kids and when her ex got an increase in his pay or lost his job and had unemployment, Child Support enforcement took all of it from one or the other. It had to be paid. If you do not like it, then you need to take it to court and go for a reduction of the amount you pay based on your current income.

I am paying support and I don't mind. I do all that is within my means to do extra for my daughter. We live in different states. I am 6 hrs away and get to see her twice out the year, her birthday and one time in the summer, and that's a struggle but I don't let her know this. I was laid off work for 5 months and the child support agency was taking the funds from my un employment but because the full pay was not met he is taking me to court to retrieve money I didn't have then and I don't have now. But I have all my paperwork to support when I was un employed and didnt have the full amount to pay.

Its not revenge, honey, it's only fair that the non custodial parent pay support to the custodial parent. It works both ways.

Go back to court, and get visitation. Support and visitation are separate in the eyes of the court. Work to get on your feet to meet support obligations.
