Can the court make me pay child support. If I am disabled and my child has always been disabled.

Q: I can’t pay and don’t want to pay. How can I stop? Please help me with this matter thank you…

A: The short answer is yes – so long as you’re the Father, you have a legal obligation to support the child. You will have the burden of proving you’re disabled thru competent medical evidence. Even if you succeed in that burden, you’d still pay 17% of your disability, unless paying makes you fall below the self-support reserve 9135% of the poverty line). Schedule a consult with a Westchester Child Support Attorney for a full assessment.
