My wife and I separated briefly, and she filed for state assistance. This meant that she had to seek a court order of child support against me. I signed the order without any argument, and the child support began to be directly garnished from my paycheck. We have since reunited and I have been paying child support for over a year on kids that I take care of. I can get no help from OSCE. They told me I would have to hire an attorney even though my wife has informed them that we live together and that she does not wish for child support any more. What can I do?
Country relating to Question: United States
State (if USA): Arkansas
We have called the office of child support enforcement repeatedly.
She went through ocse, and a judge signed the order
Does it have to be the same judge?
Thank you very much. we will be going to the courthouse tomorrow
You've been very helpful. Hopefully I'll not need you anymore, but it is good to know you're here. Thanks again.
