Child Support

I just got child support and the father wants to get a lawyer and take it away- do I have to go back to court if they request it?

The child support decision will stand. Most likely the father has no leg to stand on if you have the children. His threats are just noise and a good lawyer will tell him he is unlikely to win. If and when there is a court date, you will be notified. If he does not pay, keep on the court system to make sure he does. Meanwhile, see if you can find a better job for yourself so you are not quite so dependent on his payments. If he leaves threatening calls, be sure to keep recordings in a safe place away from the house. Many guys have a hard time with paying child support since they can't imagine "giving" you the money.
