What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? IL
We have been in and out of court for the last 6 years. What my ex has been orderd to pay for our children per month, he has never even paid in a full year. Every time we go back to court ( every 8-10 months on his terms) his lawyer manages to run over the State's Attorney and $8k-$10k are taken off the arreage each time. So far my kids have been robbed of over $34k. My ex had a great job and now claims that he does not even have enough money to drive to his part time job. Last time we went to court they said with what he makes right now, the current court order does not make any more sense and we are going to Pretrial in a few weeks again.
I would like to understand what that means? Are they going to start all over again and neglect the orders from the past?
Is this justice system making decisions for the kids or for the deadbeats ( woman or man)? I cannot afford a lawyer. I do not understand where there is the justice for the kids and if I even should waste my time going to the court date. He is not required to come, since he does not have gas money. Even his lawyer knows it is a big lie.
Thanks for your time and answers.
