Good evening. Why did you sign this prior to the divorce and what was ordered by the court? Are you saying you are noe essentially pay two child supports?
Why do you now not want to pay the $1000? That is what I am trying to determine. You shared you signed this and agreed to pay $1000 a month until the child turned 18 but now do not want to do this? Also, if the divorce was finalized, was child support not addressed?
Allow me a minute
I think we may be talking about different things, so I want to make sure we are on the same page. Women Infant Children (WIC) is a federal funded program implemented by the City of Chicago Department of Public Health that provides pregnant, breastfeeding, postpartum women, children and infants with nutrition assistance. What exactly did you sign
Thank you for the additional information. If you signed this document without understand the legalities of it, then you need to use that as a basis to void/vacate it. I am not sure where she came up with the $1000 amount or who she turned the paper into but your obligation to pay would be if there was legal effect to it. You shared that no child support has been ordered, so this was not court ordered, so if this document/agreement was turned into the State, you would need to speak with them about modifying it, to an amount which you can afford, based upon your income. If they ask why you agreed to this and signed it, you can share that it was a result of her threats. You would want and need to show that 1) you can not afford this and 2) were forced and pressured into signing it, without understanding what you agree to and 3) that you need an amount calculated under state guidelines.
You would have to make a statement and provide it, in writing, to evidence this and ask that they consider it. Also, if you can show that you do not have the income for this, then it needs to be modified.
The amount should be based upon the needs of the child. As such, you want to show that those needs can be met for less and that once your basic expenses are paid and you pay this, you are left with little to nothing. If the State is holding you to this, you need to contact them in the morning regarding the modification process.
