What is the name of your state? Arkansas
My fiance is currently incarcerated for failure to pay child support. He lost his job and couldn't find one that would pay even close to the income his obligations were based on. Once he got behind, it "snowballed" on him. He contacted the child support attorney to try to have the payment lowered, but the state appointed attorney told him he would have to wait three years to apply. The body attachment was issued and well, you know the rest. When I spoke to the OCSE attorney, he made the statement to me, "That's the [I]great [I] thing about the law in Arkansas, child support is not based on the income you make, but on the income you are capable of making." Due to his many responses to my questions with "I don't know", I contacted the main office seeking answers. He took this personal and now refuses to take my phone calls. He has not been of any help in resolving this matter and the main office insists that we deal with him directly. I will say that the main office assured me that I should contact them any time, that they were there to help, and did answer a lot of my questions. How should we handle this? We don't have the funds to hire an attorney and now I am behind on our house payments.
