Was served with a motion to confirm and clarify arrearages

Customer Question

was served with a motion to confirm and clarify arrearages and/or credit. His thing is that I had filed for child support while technically living together. We were always fighting, he kicked me out of the house on several occasions, we were always on and off. the atty general assured me that it didn't matter that we were still living together and now he's asking for a credit toward arrearages.
JA: OK. The Family Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: yes. but have nt hired.
JA: What advice did they give you?
Customer: i haven't heard back yet. I need to pay him first.

It also mentions that in the final divorce decree there's no mention anything about arrearage judgment and that it DOES contain a clause indicating that all relief not granted is denied. Does this mean he won't be responsible for any arrearages?

In what state is this? And is the child support order part of the divorce case? Did he participate in the child support case?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Texas. Yes he participated in the child support case. The child support order was issued years before the divorce. Then with the divorce, no arrears were ordered. so now he's trying to fight that.

I'm still trying to get a grasp on what he's doing. Which case did he file his current request in? And can I see a copy of it?
