Last spring I signed a child support and legitimization consent order, because of misrepresentation from my lawyer who was intimidated by the other lawyer. I can not afford what I agreed to in that order,which pretty much said to pay 50% of my net income in child support for one child!
I noted that the other lawyer, the preparer of the document, notarized my signature and the signature of the other party. Then the lawyer signed the document as the preparer and took it to the judge to be ordered.
I was reading that public notaries should not notarized a document that they are signing. I called the county without giving out names, and they confirm that the agreement would be invalid if the notary was a signee of the document as well...
Any advise on this? Should I be spending time on this?
