I believed that this client was a good father who had to make a living and only wanted what was fair. If the mother was benefiting from a fraudulent windfall at my client’s expense, I was going to do whatever I could to end it
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 25, 2013
A Wallin & Klarich client recently had his child support obligations reduced, after it was shown that the mother of the child was no longer working and did not require child support payments related to day care. The client was represented by experienced and knowledgeable family law attorney Hong Lyu.
“I believed that this client was a good father who had to make a living and only wanted what was fair. If the mother was benefiting from a fraudulent windfall at my client’s expense, I was going to do whatever I could to end it,” said Mr. Lyu.
According to Riverside County Department of Child Support Services Courthouse, the client and his former girlfriend have a son together, who primarily lives with his mother. As the non-custodial parent, the client is required to pay the mother child support each month, including half of the child care costs. The client loves his son and did not have a problem paying child support, but believed that his son was no longer going to day care even though the client was paying an extra $300 a month to the mother for child care. The client believed that the mother, his former girlfriend, was pocketing the child care money and using it for her own purposes.
The mother insisted that the child was going to day care but did not produce any evidence to support her claims according to court record. The client was unable to access his child’s day care records because the mother had not listed him as the father on the records. The client did not think it was fair that he make payments related to child care if the child was not attending day care. The client sought the help of Mr. Lyu to modify the child support order imposed by the court.
First, Mr. Lyu prepared a Request for Order for modification of the child support according to court documents. The Department of Child Support Services then submitted a motion relating to the child support request for modification. Mr. Lyu then submitted a response to the motion, which described the circumstances of the client’s case.
Mr. Lyu then accompanied and appeared with the client at a hearing at the Department of Child Support Services Courthouse. During the hearing the mother admitted that she was not working, which begged the question of why she would need child day care services. The attorney for Child Support Services and Mr. Lyu calculated a new child support amount, which ultimately resulted in a reduction in the child support payments the client was obligated to pay.
