Q: Can an ex bully you out of asking for child support?
In abusive relationship for 20 years. Was primary care giver. left w/daughter in 2018. Filed 4 CS through state. He found out & threaten to “end me.”
had hard time finding housing, hadn’t worked in 17 years. Daughter w/me 90%. November 2019, found housing. Lived there for 13 months. Owner now selling property. Father threaten to take her from me. Since I am “not stable.”
I have hard time finding place. Might have 2 rent room. Why? Was staying @ home raising daughter (not working)
Had he paid proper CS from beginning, I wouldn’t be where I am. State’s calculator says $1,475. Was recving $0-600
I know I did the right thing by leaving. It was a toxic relationship... but now I might lose my daughter. I understand why woman stay in abusive relationships... it’s better then not being with their kids.
A: ONLY IF YOU LET HIM.
HOWEVER, IT IS MORE DIFFICULT TO PRESENT YOUR CASE IF YOU DON'T HAVE A GOOD FAMILY LAW ATTORNEY.
ORGANIZE ALL THE FACTS SO THAT A LAWYER WILL SEE YOU ARE ORGANIZED AND MAY NOT BE AS TIME INTENSIVE A CLIENT AND EITHER HANDLE PRO BONO OR AT REDUCED RATE...........
