Ok is stating I owe $22000 in child support for a kid I didnt know I had for the past 10 years. What can I do from ny and can I get an attorney using legal aid for I have no money to hire one?
You should hire an attorney from Oklahoma. If you believe that you owe money then it seems as though there must have been a court judgment ordering child support at a prior time. You should have been notified of any prior hearing and given the opportunity to respond. It appears that there may have been a default judgment issued. You should provide the attorney that you consult with any paperwork that you have received from a court or child support agency. You can consult with legal services in Oklahoma to determine if you meet their income guidelines.See question
The lawyer I spoke with has set up a consultation (paid) and said this will "prep" me for court. I spend 3 nights per week w/ my child and have all records to prove the money I have paid voluntarily for my share of his child care, etc.
Your best course of action would be to meet with the attorney to learn about your legal rights and obligations and be represented at the hearing. An attorney can best present arguments in front of a magistrate to obtain your legal goals. You should particularly be represented if the opposing party is represented.See question

You are right to seek support for the child and you should do so when the child is born. The father will be required to pay support. It may not be much depending on the circumstances, but it will be something. If he is not working, the court will examine his ability to earn and may attribute income to him on that basis and he would pay on the basis of the imputed income. You should consult with an attorney who can help you file petitions for paternity, custody and support.See question

You can marry. It sounds as though you are concerned about what may happen if the relationship does not work. You can protect your interests and make arrangements to take care of her through a prenuptial agreement. You should consult with an experienced attorney to determine whether that is the right course of action for you.See question

The situation is somewhat of a catch 22. You can speak with several attorneys to see if you can find one who will initiate without a retainer at all. It may depend on your husband's income and assets and the likelihood of the court awarding fees. Alternatively you may need to find funds for a retainer. The court will decide whether to award attorney fees to you, and that might include reimbursement of the retainer. If the matter is not complex, you could also consult with your local legal services organization to determine if you qualify for free legal services.See question
The family court system has imputed income based on my ability to earn X amount 8 years ago. I am now earning 1/4 of that amount. How good are my chances in a downward mod?
If your ability to earn has been reduced for a legitimate reason then you may have an argument for a downward modification. It would be important to know what has changed in your ability to earn. You should consult with an experienced family law attorney and discuss the specific facts of your case.See question

You will need to provide the child support to the custodial parent to use for the benefit of the children. That is the purpose of child support. If your ex makes more money than you, then that reduces the amount that you will need to pay to her in the income shares approach but your share still goes to her.See question

There is probably nothing preventing her from posting a divorce pleading online, however if the allegations are untrue and publicized and have resulted in harm to you, then you may have a case for defamation. It may be possible to obtain a downward modification of support given your job loss. The court will examine whether the job was lost for reasons beyond your control and what your future job prospects are. If the job loss was voluntary, the court may impute income to you.See question

You could contact Legal Services or represent yourself pro se. If you go to the New York Courts website you can find several pro se forms and instructions there. However, if the divorce is complex or contested it is advisable to have the assistance of counsel.See question
