I just found this club today and started reviewing the posts. I’m very glad to have found such an informative website.
I live in Montreal, Canada. I have a very unique situation involving my 2 y/o daughter. I’m going to court on Oct 30th to try to regain her custody.
I care for my daughter from her birth (April 2014) till Sept 2015 while her mom was away right after the hospital, I donno where. On the weekday I go to work and left my daughter with her maternal grandma. On the weekend I would bring her back to my apartment. During that period, I paid $200.00 or as much that I could per month to the grandma for her help.
On Sept 2015, the mother of my daughter grab her away and start giving me so much trouble to see her as she live with her new boyfriend. Since Dec 2015, I was unable to see my daughter at all. Due to financial difficulty I hesitated to hire a lawyer and tried to get help through other sources but unsuccessful. I did hired a lawyer on April 2015 because I really had to see her on her birthday. I wasn’t able to see her on her birthday but was able to see her for 2 weekend out of 3 for 4 weekend till I went broke. On June, I discontinue the case after the bill went above $2000.00 and my bank account zip out.
In short, I worry about my daughter well-being, mental health and safety, not to mention I crave to see her again as the mother is mentally unstable and practicing prostitution. If anyone think they can help with any advice please email me.

If this is a recent ruling and the lower court, you probably have some time to appeal to a higher court. Of course it may be more money for her lawyer… but you can always pay him/her slowly…If you can, it might be a good idea as it could save you money over a long run or again the new court may uphold the lower court.
I imagine that Alaska has a child support chart as all states do. Sometimes lawyers especially for the other side will try to make an agreement outside of that chart which can happen through intimidation and steamrolling. If you agree to pay more than the chart, than that ends up being the stipulation…If you lose your job, or if her economic situation changes, new job etc, then you can ask for a modification. You can do it Pro-se no lawyer.
In some states if there is a modification of child support only there is no filing fee. She will however probably have that same lawyer…unless he thinks you pay too slowly…Good Luck. Eventually all children grow into adulthood and everything does pass.
Thank you for the input! My current lawyer thinks it would be unwise to appeal the decision as the same judge will hear it. However My current lawyer also failed to provide the court with the documentation showing my current wage and what it computes to in child support. For that matter the years earnings that my child support was based on is the year previous to my daughters birth.
A year I worked two jobs and lots of overtime.I did get awarded 35% of travel expenses as I live 375 miles from my daughter. However that is to be deducted from my yearly income for computation purposes.Even then I still would pay nearly 100$ more a month. Yes you are right all children grow into adulthood but it is the years in between my daughter will need me the most.

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.
