On or about the first of 2013, I received custody of my child, after a five year battle..…one of the problems I consistently complained about, not the worst of the issues but one of the minor ones, that didn’t matter much at that time….please take in consideration…my Ex receives SSD payments…as a result, my child receives a check from her disability… But, when she had custody and I paid child support
...I was told it doesn't have anything to do with child support and could not be included in the figures because in all effect, the money belonged to my child...not either of the parents...the money did not come from my money paid in nor her money paid in and was not deducted from either in order for the child to receive the check…it was simply above and beyond what we either would ever make and was to improve the life of the child….So, I accepted it and paid my child support….. In 2013, when I received custody and child support was talked about again, and this issue came up again…the lawyers wanted to include it again…I went to the Social SECURITY OFFICE AND TALKED TO THEM IN ORDER TO KNOW WHO WAS TELLING THE TRUTH…I was informed that since I now had custody, I would have to receive the money that was rightfully my child since I was now the legal guardian…… And that this money HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH CHILD SUPPORT…..and supplied me with several web sites that prove what she said….government web sites…I will try to include them…..now….the problem….Their back……….now, three years later…..child support agency, my ex, and even my attorney is coming after me saying that she has over paid because of the SSD payments……AND SHE WANTS HER MONEY BACK….according to my attorney…the type of SSD my ex has, these rules do not apply and everyone else is wrong, even the government…. My Attorney said that my ex has SSDI…Its not SSD….When I asked SSA, they said they are the same…one means Social Security Disability and the other just has the last word on it, Social Security Disability Insurance…. can someone explain this for a stupid person???? DON’T GET ME WRONG…NEVER CARED BECAUSE EVERY PENNY WENT ON HER AND HER EXTRACRICULAR PROJECTS and its her money….bUT PAYING IT BACK NOW WILL CAUSE HER TO LACK….Notice the last paragraph of this page I supplied, where it says......Will the Money I Am Getting in Allowance Benefits Replace the Child Support I Owe?
When you receive disability benefits your dependents may also be eligible to receive auxiliary benefits under your name. Many people mistakenly believe that the disability payments that their children receive go toward the child support that is owed. This is not the case. The family allowance is not used to satisfy any child support obligation. Any money that your dependents receive from disability benefits is in addition to what you owe in child support. The two are not one in the same.

ALSO...when you are ordered to participate in depositions....Are the attorneys entitled and legally able to ask questions that have nothing to do with the charges that have been filed...or is this simply a fishing expedition???? My understanding is I can not be forced to testify against myself
