I was served papers from my ex-wife's attorney that summon me to a hearing to modify our original divorce agreement. There were contradictory statements on the agreement that stated I agree to pay $800 per month in child support but also shortly after that it says "both parties agree that neither party shall pay child support."
We have been divorced for 2 years now and I only made child support payments to my ex-wife directly but fell way behind. Child support services has not been involved at all and I am probably 2 years behind, would I owe back child support if the agreement had that error the whole time? Thanks.
It looks like a typo - maybe meant to say spousal support? If you paid child support in the past, then you are admitting that you think you owe the support so it's probably not likely that you would be successful with this argument but you could argue that it was confusing.
