I apologize for posting off topic but I wondered if anyone reading this could give some general legal advice.
My ex-husband's monthly child support payments were calculated on a relatively high-paying job that he had at the time, a few years ago. Since then, he has had a number of jobs that don't pay as well -- but he never had the child support adjusted through the system. (Child support is collected through ORS, as my ex owes probably seven or eight grand in back support at this point). Each month that large amount owes just goes on the balance, as he works and slowly wittles it down.
Today his attorney emailed me a spreadsheet, detailing my ex's employment, basically saying that this is why he does not owe all of the back child support his paychecks are currently being garnished for.
My question is -- is there legally a way for him not to have to pay back child support, if he never bothered to adjust the amount? I think his attorney is just trying to get me to say I'll waive the back support, although I am under no obligation to do so.
Thanks in advance for your input. :)
