I requested CS to review my income to not take extra for arrears- they have not gotten back to me.

Q:  These child support orders are all new and the reason for arrears is from being medically out of work but judge didn't bother caring. Anyway i submitted all documents to request to not take more but what if i cant make the regular weekly amount? I have worked 60+ hours weekly and still cant afford my bills plus cs! I barely have ate anything in days because i cant afford it. What happens ( besides the obvious- license suspension , freeze bank accounts, ect i read it all ) if i really cant survive on what i make plus child support even working doubles every day? Do they eventually just not care and take things away?

A: David's AnswerFortunately or unfortunately, SCU can take support + arrears which would strip you down to the self-support reserve - which is 135% of the poverty line. As such, if you're left with at least that much, they're not technically taking too much (& all of your income counts towards this analysis). For a full assessment, schedule a consult with a Child Support lawyer in your area. - David Bliven, Bronx Child Support attorney (
