The court is not going to notify you of the amount of your last payment. You need to be proactive and communicate with the child's mother that you intend to pro rate the amount so there are no surprises. If there is an income assignment, you need to be proactive with that as well so your employer will not continue to take money from your check.

Typically there will be a section to help people "Find A Lawyer" which allows you to enter information for the type of attorney you are looking for.

Good luck!
