When I was initially placed on child support a few years ago the DA stated that my arrears would be waived due to not having the correct employer on file and not being served the papers by the court therefore the amount continued to increase. Till this day I owe 17,000 in back child support and I'm wondering is it worth hiring a lawyer to fight this I have no documentation to prove this however I did have a lawyer at the time.
It's possible that the judgment (including the statement that the arrears were ordered to be waived) is on file at the courthouse. If not, then a transcript or audio recording of what was said in court may be kept in the court's minutes or with the court reporter. You may need an attorney to help you access it and present it to the court on your behalf.
If it is not in the judgment, then you would need some other proof that this statement occurred. Normally, child support is owed from the date of filing.
Arrears will not be waived. But they may be reduced if the monthly amount was set without you receiving notice and your not appearing. Hire a child support attorney to file a Petition to Annul.
