I'm so new to this, That's why I'm asking what rights I'd be protecting by hiring a laywer for my court ordered child support. Any advice will go along ways. Thank you! =)

I kind of figured that you were new to this, but that doesn't address what the problem is or why you might need an attorney.

Are you denying paternity and therefore should not be paying child support?

Are you disagreeing with the amount?

Are you disagreeing with the withholding order?

Do you have a court date coming up? And if so, what is it about?

I'm sorry, but I can't help you if I don't know exactly what it is that you need help with.

Oh, okay it would be for the amount they want per paycheck. I don't make anything near the amount they assumed.

---> Ahhhhhhhh...now we are getting somewhere.

---> The word "assumed" tells me that your imcome was "imputed"...meaning that they didn't actually have copies of your tax returns or W-2s, so they probably looked at what you do for a living, how long you have been doing it and what the "average" was.

---> So...to answer your original questions of whether or not you are going to need an attorney...that all depends, but I'm guessing here on what you aren't saying, that it would be best if you retained an attorney for this matter.

I see what you mean, All I know is that I've started a new job and my income now isn't anything like last years. Since I started a new job and it pays like crap, I can't see them going off of last years income, W-2's etc. but, then again Kansas roles out the red carpet for single mothers I'm sure. I'm working poor and living in America!!! thanks

four years in office LOL!!! :)

You need to file for a modification of child support. Understand that the burden of showing why you are unable to generate the same income as previously earned will be upon you.
