I have been paying since 2006 all different amounts, lost tax returns and had my credit ruined due to having so much taken from me to pay for my exwife to be on public assistance. I currently received a check where my take home was 47% without overtime I couldn t even pay my bills. what can I do
You will not, realistically, be able to sue them, but you should be able to file a motion to modify support to the amount that actually reflects your income. (Assuming you make at least minimum wage. The law presumes that all parents are capable of making at least minimum wage, 40 hours a week, for support calculation purposes. That's $1,525 per month, at this time.) You are entitled to a a review of support amounts every 35 months, and you can also file to modify based on a substantial change in circumstances from the last order - i.e., if you lose a job, &c. You should consult with an attorney in private if you need to do this.
Note that you will probably think that even the "correct" amount of child support is too high. Everyone who pays support always does.
this seems very unfair. but when dealing with these guys, it usually is. mistakes are made and many times the dad has to suffer. i am not sure you can sue them for their failures. however, you should be able to convince a judge to give you some relief by their mistakes if proven. contact a local attorney and present that proof.
