How can I get my arrears lowered can't afford to pay the 277... how can you help?

Q: I'm disabled and I only get $525 from SSD child support is taking $277 of that I can't even pay my rent I don't get food stamps so how am I supposed to eat please help me I no longer live in New Jersey I live in New York now don't have enough money to travel back to New Jersey to go to court don't know what to do please help

A: So are you discussing a NY order, or a NJ order? Assuming it's a NY order, you'd need to file a modification petition & a Petition to Adjust Arrears. For the Court to limit arrears to $500 in any given year, you'd need to be able to prove to the satisfaction of the Court that your income was below the poverty line, and it was thru no fault of yours. Call a Bronx Child Support attorney for more info.
