Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Thank you for contacting Just Answer. I look forward to assisting you.
While we write back and forth, please keep in mind that I do not know what you already know or don't know, or with what you need help, unless you tell me. Sometimes I'm unable to read your entire question until AFTER I write back to you.
Although it's usually five minutes, sometimes there can be a delay of an hour or more in between my answers because I may be researching the answer to your question, helping other customers, or taking a break. If we are writing late at night, I may have to go to sleep and resume helping you the following morning.
I need the following information before I can answer your question:
Can you please tell me what state is involved in your question? I cannot see it on my screen right now. I may need to research your state-specific law.
I'll look forward to hearing from you,
Jane Doe Deer
Contact the hearing officer's office, and anyone else you can think of, and ask to "appear" (participate) by telephone. Try that on Monday and then write back to me and let me know what happened.
I've never heard of anyone being turned down who is in your shoes. In fact, the office will pay for the call. All you have to do is be available by your phone at the right time and on the right day.
In addition, you can make a motion and go to court and ask a judge to decrease the amount of support you have to pay because of your changed circumstances.
I'd be happy to answer follow-up questions. If you have none, please "accept" my answer and ask for "Jane Doe Deer" the next time you use JustAnswer.com.
I wish you the best.
