My child support from my ex husband is only $1 a month, the court ordered this! My child is now 5 years old and let me say that $1 doesn't cover anything. My ex now lives in new Mexico and has some health conditions of which I am not 100% sure about, all the same he does have income. He will be signing for a $20k publishing company for one of his books soon, so I'm wondering why he only pays $1 a month when I am struggling to keep my utilities on so my son can take a bath every night and stay cool during the summer? Not including clothing and other expenses. This really has reached point where I no longer have the ability to single handily support myself and my son, I'm wondering how to raise the amount he pays and if possible sue for the last 5 years he's only paid $1, which has not helped.
