Customer Question
I have gone to...

I have gone to Child Support Services. My divorce was finalized on July 11, 2017. I can claim arrears from August 1,2017 because my ex has not complied with the order. I agreed for my ex to pay half the guideline amount $435 ($840 was guideline amount). I know it's been a short time, but I want to file a motion for change of support. I have a 17 year old that will become 18 Dec. 1, 2017 and a 15 year old. I don't think my chances filing earlier than 6 months will be good for a judgement in my favor.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Colorado, Denver

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Can't afford it
