Child Support order that was calculated incorrectly/unfairly
Child Support order that was calculated incorrectly/unfairly by the judge. Child lives in a different state. I have been married for 9.5 yrs & we have 2 kids (9, 7). We had issues 2 years ago & lived separate for 3 months. I made a bad choice & met upwith an old friend/woman from School. The day I told her I could not see/talk to her anymore, I was working things out with my wife, OW said "I think I'm pregnant". 3 hours later, OW provided me with an ultrasound & blood test. OW (other woman) lives 500 miaway. OW was on birth control, I used protection & I have fertility issues which was discovered when trying to start a family with my wife. OW would not consider any alternatives & said "I might not be the father”. I was absent at birth. OW tells me I hadto be the father b/c the estimated conception date. OW threatened my career with the Military. I did the right thing & purchased items for the child. I also began paying her once birth by post dated checks $500 a month which was our agreement. I was accusedin a mix-up/ legal situation before the child was born & accumulated debt in the amount of $50,000 for legal services. My wife supported me, our kids & all of our family bills while I sent money to the woman & tried to pay debt. I paid her for 1 year untilmy military contract ended & I became unemployed. I asked to keep the child during the summer while I was unemployed to reduce childcare cost for her since I could not provide financially. OW would not & has not let me bring the child to my home around myfamily. OW will only let me see her at a hotel alone. OW now tells me OW doesn't want me near the child & "only wants my money." OW filed for child support in May while I was unemployed. I went to court in August. The judge ordered a paternity test. I triedto ask the judge several questions & explain that I was unemployed. He told me, lets worry about all that next time, lets find out if you are the father first. I did not have the money to toss away to obtain an attorney to represent me to find out if I wasthe father or not. I thought my next trip to the court would be the results of the paternity. Dec I arrive back at the court. I'm told that I am the father, the judge did not ask for proof of income, I explained I had just obtained employment 4 months aftersupport papers were filed, I asked for an extension to be able to obtain an attorney. The Judge declined my request. He asked what my current salary was, & how many children I had prior to. He did not ask if my wife was employed, or how much I paid for medicalinsurance for her or our kids, or how much I pay for childcare for my kids. He gave me only the basic 2 kid deduction from my GROSS income. For the OW's income, he gave her a reduction for 1 child OW has from a previous marriage OW received $650 a month forbut didn't add that to her gross. He used my state income table, input the st&ard amount for 1 child, added the amount OW reported childcare which is a friend that keeps the child, & medical insurance (doubled the actual amount). He totaled the st&ard amount+ child care + insurance for a total. My income was higher than hers though OW is a nurse & in school to become a NP, & receiving grants. The cost of living is close to 20% higher in my state than hers & salary is significantly higher. Her state initiatedthe support request, I do not underst& why that did use her states income table & factor the cost of living difference. It was figured that I shall support 64% of her expenses. The judge ordered me to pay $5,000 back pay which included months that I was notemployed. As well since starting the job my salary increased $13,000. Unfortunately, I will not be employed much longer due to my security clearance. Therefore, my current salary is one that I'm not qualified for, & I will not be able to receive any whereelse. The judge made my appeal amount at double the arrears $11,000+. I tried to get a loan but was denied. I can't even support myself if my wife were to divorce me because of this nightmare I placed on her. I can't support my 2 children who are used to astandard of living. My kids childcare just for summer is only $1,500 less than what the OW pays for an entire year. My wife pays $900 a month for before & after school care for our kids. I am paying down my legal debt so that I don't have to file bankrupt& that affect her to. My forgiving wife is being punished & my first 2 kids suffer.
My twins that were conceived through fertility are one year
My twins that were conceived through fertility are one year old. I adpoted them as embryos. There are not genetically related to me or my husband. I did this while hewas in immigration detention. During the process I realized he used them as an argument to stay. I was coerced by him and doubled over and listed him at the father. I have a text from him stating so and maybe even a letter. I want to know if I have enough to win a court order to take him off. I am in California.
