My question involves child support in the State of: MD
I am a stay at home mom. I havent worked since 2009...right after I lost primary care of my children to their father. I couldnt even afford a lawyer when I went in to court initially which is why I think I lost the case. Anyway, my question is this...and I think this is more opinionated, rather than legal...
I am supposed to be paying child support...unfortunately I dont work, so I have an outstanding bill. My ex who works all kinds of hours has to hire childcare to monitor the children when he is at work. I dont understand why I have to pay child support when I am at home with my younger child (my husband supports me). Wouldnt the court consider my children coming to live with me since I am able to be there for them? Right now, my bill is getting hire and my children are being raised by babysitters.
I guess Im just frustrated, because at this point I cant afford a proper atty and going into court without one is out of the question.
What is your take on this?
