Due to some major financial troubles my daughter and I have moved back in with my ex husband. He is currently under a court order to pay child support and has been for several years. He pays no bills. He lives in a home that is provided for him (rent free) by his family. They pay all utility bills and up until I moved in they were paying his child support as well. I lost all my work when the economy went down the tubes so this child support is all that we have at the moment other than a roof over our heads. I am trying as hard as I can to get work but so far (three months later) I have very little. He is $1,300 hundred dollars behind and his family is telling him they will not pay as long as I am here. My situation is that without this I have nothing to keep me going until I am able to find work. They say a judge will make me "forgive" the support owed and will stop it since I am living in his home. I am DESPERATE for help. I have no where else to go, no family or anyone other than him to go to. I understand that you can not tell me what a judge will do in any particular case but can you give me some thoughts as to how they might look at the situation as he is under a court order.
