My mess.
      #783875 - 04/27/12 03:49 PM

Got divorced in 2011. Ex was laid off a year prior, I'm a fireman and picked up 2 additional side jobs. My cs was based on me working over 90 hrs a week and her working none. I'm in FL and currently pay her 1850 a month for 2 kids. She then filed taxes and screwed me on those, leaving me with owing the IRS 4 grand. I see me kids 3 nights a month due to my work schedule, and can hardly keep up. She follows the divorce decree only where it suits her, and with the situation now affording a lawyer is almost impossible. I feel like its an endless cycle and I will be destitute for a long time. If I start working more to get a lawyer it will only increase my income, so what would be the point? She is now working full time and of course won't help me at all. How do guys handle something like this with the least repercussions!

Her working is a change in circumstances. Quit your two side jobs and file for a child support adjustment.

Why give a "senior" discount, they have had plenty of time to raise the money...

Go pro-se if you must. Most states have a worksheet, should be a numbers game nothing more.

She should have been imputed minimum wage to begin with. I got a chuckle when my ex was imputed $7.50/hr, not sure she is worth that much to anyone.
