Legal Question

Asked on: 1/13/10, 7:10 pm

My ex and I have been divorced since MArch of 2008, I divorced him because he was abusive and controlling, however there was never any proof, bad on my part. He took everything and left me with nothing, including our 3 boys. I have been paying him child support since before our divorce was final. I was working a minimum wage job that started at about 36 hours a week with a pay rate of 7.40 an hour, and was paying him 225 as this was an offer i made to pay him and his attorney advised he accepted it, as time went on my hours decreased and I needed to have support lowered beacause I didnt have enough to live off. SInce that time I have re-married, and also gotten my drivers license and my GED whih I was unable to do while I was married to my ex because of his abuse. My current husband is Canadian, and I am living in Canada but just starting the Immigration process, my support got lowered to 178 but they want to do a 6 month review hearing, I cannot cross the border because I could be denied entry to either country. FOC told me if we reached an agreement and submitted that the court hearing would be cancelled. My new husband has been paying my support and he has children of his own. If I levae Canada i may never be allowed to see my husband or step kids again if the US denies me back in I may never be able to see my 3 boys again my ex now thinks i should pay him $450 a month based on what he would make if there was a second income in his household ( he had a wife) that worked a minimum wage job.My ex keepps trying to prevent me from oving forward no matter what direction I take, there has to be a way to put a stop to his abuse and control. Please Help
