Thank you for your time but I may need to make myself clearer. It seems that you understand what I'm saying but I feel I need to verify your assumptions to make sure I'm correct in dealings this week. I won't take more of your time and will pay you.
1st. The record where she request a hearing with the Attorney General office to forgive rearages (am I saying that correct?) was over the phone but was made to the Child Support office and they told me that they do have that on record. Does that qualify as a court record? At worse I would assume it damages her attempt to fight back pay because I am guessing that she'll say she never said such a thing and hopefully she'll say that before I request for the Attorney General Office (Child Support Division) to produce the record that has noted where she made the request to forgive originally. They have told me that those notes will be available at the hearing.
2nd. I have had possesion of my daughter since the week she got out of school prior to this school year (June 2008.) So it was the entire summer and she also moved most of her personal items into our new house we're renting now ( a nice 4 bedroom house so she had her own room) in July 2008 where she has her own room and started her brand new school where she's missed school one time compared to 9 times with her mom the previous year.
3rd. I wish i could afford to hire an attorney but the stock market has made it to where I live client to client building websites. But I've managed to buy my daughter and son who lives with his Mom their Christmas when she couldn't and their school clothes all my own because she wasn't able to afford anything even though she was getting child support for both kids plus some rearages when I was drawing unemployment most of the months. So even when I had my daughter and was on max unemployment she was getting full child support for both kids and rearages. The original court order was I pay $500 a month for both kids so she was getting around $700 a month for many months while I've had my daughter. If I have my daughter and she has my son shouldn't that $700 at worse case pay against the rearages she still says I owe? But if the court finds that I didn't owe back support the day she was supposed to be at the meeting she scheduled and never showed up to, could she actually owe me?
If you know an attorney who needs a website built on trade for just a few hours of couurt time this Thursday lat me know. Otherwise, I've got the info you're arming me with that's a great deal. I was a National debate champion in '91 and on a full ride debate scholarship so I can at worse case be pretty persuasive compared to the guy with no background in presenting arguements and facts....
Your advice is greatly appreciated and I will pay you upon these clarifications.
