So a child support order was put into effect with false income household status and now the amount due is 10,000$ the support enforcement agency hasnt responded to requests for help. How do I go about getting the amount lowered so that way I can still provide for my wife and step daughter at home while paying legit amount? My wife and I make less than the mother and her live in baby daddy by 1,000s of dollars and now the state wants to take our only vehicle?
If you have grounds to modify support you better act as soon as possible. Courts do not have the authority to make support orders retroactive nor can they forgive support debt.
The other thing you need to remember is that your wife's income and your former spouse's new husband's income is not considered when setting support. The courts, by statute, can only look at what you make and what she makes.
So do yourself a favor and get a lawyer as soon as possible and get the case filed.
