However, a judge will not look kindly on a failure to continue support payments. You need to document your employment history AS WELL AS all efforts to find work and ask for your payments to be lowered. Meanwhile keep making the payments as best you can.

As for visitation, in many states a mother interfering with visitation is not acting in the best interests of the child. File a motion for contempt citing ALL of the difficulties you have encountered – list each one in numbered paragraphs with dates if possible. As the judge for custody or ask for joint custody with legal residence awarded to you – that’s a small psychological victory but a victory if you win.

The plaintiff in my case has sent me a registered piece of mail that I haven’t gotten yet… I had a downward modification because of my wife’s illness and I have started to pay a little more than my ordered amount.

In the new order I am responsible for paying 1687.00 dollars in back support while I waited to go to court. My lawyer said to pay a little towards that back amount. (a couple of bucks). I guess this month I will need to ask for a cash advance to make my ends meet. I will do it at UtahCashHelp which is my website of choice when it comes to any financial needs in Utah (where I live).

I am guessing that this certified letter is notifying me that she wishes to take it to appellate court. I am so sick of court. On the other hand it could be notice of contempt for not paying 1680.00 or an enforcement…

I sent her my payments with a new p.o. box so I don’t know how easy it will be to have me served…The payments before were threatening to have my family out in the street. Will keep everybody updated.

I began my custody dispute 11 months ago. All I asked for was that my child support be brought in line with my actual income and that I be allowed to reasonable visitation with my daughter. I received the visitation I wanted but got shafted on the support. My support was set at 128 dollars more a month than it should have been and I was assigned to pay 1500 of her lawyer bill.

Until we went to court I had not once had my daughter and the mother saw no reason for me to have access to her. She was the one preventing my daughter from having a father and I have to pay her bill. I just don’t understand. Not only that but why do I have to pay such high child support. Anyway enuff rambling, any guys in Anchorage Alaska who can give me suggestions feel free to email me…. I am looking for a new lawyer also.
