I was to appear in child support court today but did not know today was the court date because the letter I received only 2-3 days ago has the wrong date on it. I'm an hour away from the county where the hearing is scheduled and I cannot leave work because I'm the only one at this location.
Contact the court and ask them to reschedule the hearing date. Explain (with a copy of the letter you received) that you were given the wrong date to appear and that is why you missed court.
You should also hire a lawyer to take care of this for the future. Support is complicated and you appear to have a lot of things to care for and a lawyer will be able to help.
