Q: As a dad that has been divorced for 3 years, I have questions on my rights because it seems like i have none.
my son lived with me for 2 years and I did not recieve any financial help from the mother. Now he lives with her and the Attorney general is taking more than 50% of my paycheck to pay back what they think I owe for the 2 years he was with me. I have zero problem paying my child support I just cant live on 50% of my earnings. I know now I should've had everything changed when he was with me but now I need to get this straight. Also I have always maintained medical and dental insurance for him.. NOW she is telling me I have to pay for medical visits she is taking him out of network. I want to know my rights because I can prove everything, payments for years before I was getting garnished by the AG, proof he lived with me for two years and I provided for him school records etc. I have so many more things to discuss, I basically dont want to be under her thumb anymore. I unfortunatley dont know my rights so I cant defend myself and I'm a good dad.. getting taken advantage of. HELP PLEASE!
You really need to just talk to a lawyer for an hour, let me/him/her read your prior order, answer your questions and make recommendations.
I've been helping Fathers for 25 years. I'd be glad to help if you want to call me office and set up a time to confer.
