Legal Question

Asked on: 9/20/10, 7:51 am

My Husband just received a ruling from a judge in Arizona which troubles us and makes no sense. Amoung ruling everyting in favor of his ex was a request to modify support. We are currently paying the ex $1,900 a month in child support with no calculation to support how that number was figured (when going through the divorce my husband had no attorney). When placed in the AZ calculator, the amount should be about $1,100, or about a 35% change. Yet the judge ordered no change in support? Further, the judge also ordered we play the ex's attorney fees, although the only reason we went to court was she was not allowing my husband to see his children and told him if he wanted to see them or change anything, he had to do it in though the courts. Becuase of the attorney fees we have paid and the excess we pay in child support, we are close to bankruptcy now. Are there any options or programs to help us keep fighting to see the children or to get the support to what it should be? We are at a loss of what to do but don't want to give up on the children if we can help it, we just have no money left to fight.
