Durham North Carolina Child Support Help - 12/29/14 06:41 PM

Hello Everyone,

I am seeking legal counsel for a child support increase. I feel like the social worker and reall everyone in that office is mistreating me. I will not be able to afford the suggested support one reason is that they grossly inflated my income. Does anyone know of a attourney that has been historically sucessful in lowering suggested amounts in Durham NC?

Have you tried a google search of lawyers in your area?

BTW, the guidelines are likely not suggested amounts. And if you quit a higher paying job, well, it is likely the imputed income that you are stuck with is not going away. You will want to discuss that with a couple of lawyers that you consult with after your google search.

Probably depends on where the numbers they used to....grossly inflate....your income came from.

Find a lawyer, he will help you tell the truth and how the law applies......

They had to come from somewhere.......

You need to pay whatever DSS suggests. If you pay a lawyer $3000 he/she will lie to you and offer you false hope. Then when you go in front of a judge you will end up paying more than DSS is requesting. Don't fool yourself. You have no rights.
