My question involves child support in the State of: Utah
The kids have lived with me for the last 5 years, and I have paid $750. a month for child support to their mother. I paid $10,000 to a lawyer 3 years ago to sue for custody, but she continually lies, and says that the children live with her. At that time the kids were pretty young, but now my oldest is 18.
I have had to file bankruptcy, and have almost lost my house, because I have been paying her for so much child support, and in the meantime I'm the one supporting the kids financially on top of the child support?
I notified Recovery Services a year ago, and they called her, but she said that they lived with her for more than 3 days a week. When in fact they only see her 3 or 4 times a month. The oldest one is willing to testify that he has lived with me for the last 4 years, but I am not sure if that is acceptable to the state?
I have requested a modification for my child support, but I'm not sure how to prove that they are living with me other than their school records?
