Hello. Thanks for contacting us.
Before I respond, may I first make sure I understand the information you need?
Are you asking about a situation in which a child is not being taken care of by a parent because of domestic violence by a different parent? And both the child and the second parent were victims of the violence?
And then, the parent who was a victim of violence is asked to pay to help support the child?
Thanks for clarifying.
the child was arrested with a felony the county evaluator said by law he has to tell me that he is a danger to the community & to myself after detention he is in placement now they won't return him to my home until they are sure i will no longer live in fear they want me to pay child support. yes there was domestic violence in the home but i did not testified against him at his trial he didn't need more to hold him.
this is a child support question i want to know if even your a parent, if also a victim if i disagreed with dcs and went to talk to the judge would he wave the support because im a victim?
