Child Support Question - Paying Too Much
I have a question. My BF, according to the calculations of the court and lawyers, is obligated to pay a certain amount of child support (of course, we all are). His divorce was a very stressful time for him and he threw everything he could in to try to get it over with and her to sign the papers as soon as possible. One of the things that he included was paying about three times as much child support per month than he was originally supposed to.
We just can't afford this payment. Not only is it far too high to be considered reasonable, it's just not possible. On top of that, she had it stuck in there that he has to pay an extra amount per month to make up for the months that they were seperated before the divorce. I personally find this ridiculous to begin with because BF gave her money on occasion before their divorce but they had been seperated for years and she managed to pay all the bills and raise the child just fine on her own and without this ridiculous monthly payment.
What can I do to try to get this payment reduced? Does the fact that he originally agreed to pay this absurd amount make him ineligible for a decrease?
