How can I get my child support
case modified in Florida if I live in Virginia? I have tried everything for the past 4 years and have gone no where with this state. My pay records consistently are incorrect, even after requesting audit after audit. I am
not trying to STOP paying child support, I am simply trying to lower the amount I am supposed to pay because it is based on what I was making while in the military. I don't make half of what I was making now so I can't keep up with the payments. Needless to
say that in the past 2 years, I have racked up quite a bit of arrears and they keep garnishing my taxes and with holding money from my paycheck, but I can't get anywhere with a modification nor can I get any real help with correcting my pay records. Another
thing they have been doing that I noticed was adding an additional 10$ on the court ordered increaded amount. So my order was increased in 2011 from 236$ to 471$ a month, with an additional 10$ to be withheld from my check and sent to her to cover supposed
arrears, which I had proof was incorrect from my pay stubs but they didn't accept that evidence, and also since they back dated the order back to when she filed for the modification. So they started taking 481$ from my check each month finally 6 months later.
They continued to take that amount, but they also were charging me 471$ and 10$ a month. So since then 10$ a month has been getting added to what I owe too. In reality it should only be 471$ added to my monthly payment, and I pay 481 to "catch up", even though
prior to all of this, I had a credit. They also have added mysterious arrearages onto my pay records that weren't there before, and can't explain clearly what or where is came from. So how can they add it with out any proof that I owe that amount, but can't
take my old paycheck stubs as evidence that child support was with held from my check for her? It feels very one sided, and seems to only benefit the mother
, and treats me, a father that has been paying his child support on time, even giving her money on the
side, and trying to see my son but she will NOT allow me to even have a phone number to talk to him, treats me like a dead beat. I know I need an attorney, but all of the ones I call, I seem to get different answers from. They either try to discourage me from
trying to modify it, or act as though I am trying to skip out on my fatherly duties by trying to lower the amount I have to pay. I just want some one to clearly explain to me what my rights are in this situation. I know my pay records and arrears are not correct
at all. I have all of the proof, dating back to 2005 when the order was started. Tax returns that were intercepted. Everything. I just need to get this all handled so I can focus on getting some kind of visitation
set up through the courts. But until I get
this child support in check, I can't afford to do anything for this child, or my 4 other children.
