I am paying back child supportarrears for my 19 year old son. i have a disabled ten year old from a different father, who prevented me from working for 5 years (hospitalized inpatient 16 times since 2004). I tried to get the order modified, but, didn't win because because i didn't have legal representation. I have lost my job, but, even when working full time the support was causing extreme hardship. N Also, from the time my oldest was 17-18 he lived with me. DSS removed him from my exhusband's home and placed him with me. I didn't get support from him and am still being held responsible for payment for those twelve months. First, can I get rid of the $5200 that I dont owe when my son was living with me and second, is there a way to get the payment reduced?The support arrears payment is coming directly out of my unemployment and I am left with enough for rent. - not food, not heating oil (which i ran out of last January and couldn't buy again).
