18-0042021 Urgent Need
Client seeks assistance with a child support matter. Client/mother has had primary custody of her fourteen-year-old daughter since 2004 and has had a child support order since 2004 requiring father/OP to pay $704 per month. At the end of 2017, client stopped working because she was pregnant and expecting another child soon. When her unemployment benefits ended in December 2017, client’s only income became child support. In April 2018, client was informed that OP had received a promotion to police detective and was also managing several rental properties, so his income had increased significantly. Client filed for modification and a conference was held in May 2018. Client believes OP did not disclose all his income and wishes to dispute his income documentation at the next hearing. A volunteer is needed to represent client at an evidentiary hearing before Master Botchway on August 1, 2018, at 10:30 am. Client also has a custody case for which VIP is finding a separate volunteer.
