I was court ordered to pay $50 a week in child support for two children a year ago, at the time I was working 40 hours a week at ten dollars an hour. I lost my job shortly after and couldn't pay or get the help I needed to adjust my payments. Now I owe over 2000 dollars back support plus my weekly payments and an extra ten dollars on past due amount. I just started a job only working 20 hours a week and make around 300 dollars every two weeks, and pay $120, almost half my check.
You need to file for a modification. The child support calculator uses different factors to determine the appropriate amount. Hiring counsel to modify may save money in the lobby run.
