Customer Question

I just had a pendent lite hearing a few weeks ago and the judge ordered me to pay 663.00 in child support. Previously, I was paying 620.00 in child care expenses plus other miscellaneous things my kids needed. I am confused on do I only pay 663.00 now plus the 620.00, or do I just pay the 663.00 total. (Child care included). Please help

Customer: My soon to be ex-wife makes more than me, but is seeking more money than expected.

You need to get a copy of the orders here to verify you only owe the $663.Normally this replaces the child care and miscellaneous expenses.But you need to verify that this was the case here.Based on what you were paying this seems like the $663 covers everything.But getting a copy of the order here protects that you are paying as ordered.

I am so sorry you are having to deal with all of this.I wish you the best here.
