Good morning,

I'm sorry to hear of your dilemma.

Are you saying that the state is taking money from your earnings to pay for child support arrears?

By the way, you can NOT bankrupt out of child support arrears. And honestly, something is wrong if you only earn $1,274 a month and of that amount $1,000 is being taken. Are these TRULY the right numbers??
