I have just recently returned to work after being layed off from my previous job. Let me say first that I have worked since I was 13 and am not a slacker. I fell behing on my child support to my ex (who by the way never paid a dime to his ex for the support of his son). Here in MA, the laws are very strict. If you don't pay, they take your tax return (which they did), levy your bank account (which they did), garnish your pay (which they are) and even tack on 25% more if you have an arrearage. My payment is now up to $200.00 a week and I am so mad!! They go by your gross income, which is a hell of a lot higher. I am desperately trying to get out my financial hole and will need to file bankruptcy. My main concern is I want to save money to get a bigger place so my son can have his own bedroom and then I might be able to get shared custody again. How can I do that if they keep taking more and more?? I feel so violated and bound by this system. I just need some advice on how to stay calm. I feel like spitting in my ex's face right now.
