A) I understand that you are in a difficult situation. You are struggling to make child support payments, and you have been unable to find a job and when you finally got one you have no way of transportation. You are also concerned about your mom as well as the impact that this is having on your relationship with your children.
I want to assure you that you are not alone. Many parents find themselves in similar situations. Child support can be a financial burden, and it can be difficult to make payments when you are struggling to make ends meet.
There are a few things that you can do to try to get off child support. First, you can try to negotiate with the other parent. If they are willing to agree to a lower payment, or to waive payments altogether, you may be able to get out of your child support obligation.
If you are unable to negotiate with the other parent, you can file a petition with the court to have your child support order modified or terminated. In your petition, you will need to explain why you are unable to make payments. You may also need to provide evidence of your financial situation.
The court will consider all of the factors involved in your case, including your income, your expenses, and the needs of your children. If the court finds that you are unable to make payments, they may modify or terminate your child support order.
I know that this is a difficult time for you. I want to encourage you to reach out for help. There are many resources available to parents who are struggling to make child support payments. You can find more information and resources on the Child Support Enforcement website.
I hope that you are able to get the help that you need.
