My ex-wife and I have a child support order set up through the court, which included arrears for the time between our temporary and final divorce orders. I was out of work for a couple of months, but now that I am employed, Child Support Enforcement has added an additional $550 a month to my child support.
Does CSE super cede a court order? This was not requested by my ex-wife, and she states that she is fine with the current amount. I don't have a problem adding a reasonable amount to the current payments to make up for the time I was unemployed, but I think $550 more a month is excessive. Not to mention the fact that I can't afford it. Can I enforce the actual court order, or maybe even another avenue to reduce the amount? My case worker from CSE has been completely uncooperative.
