I don't think a guy should even waste his time with a lawyer when it comes to the child support part anyways. The states have a formula and the judge will just use that formula to calculate child support. It doesn't matter how good your lawyer is. The formula is just the formula and there's no way around it unless your ex agrees to a smaller amount than the formula comes out to. Just prepare to get screwed. It's a very biased system. Women get everything and the men have to pay through the nose. It sucks.
Ha Ha! You just brought back a funny memory! My father in law slipped on ice at the end of his drive and just layed there cause he couldn't get up. My mother in law can't walk very well from a stroke. So she called the neighbors, in the country, to come get him. He was fine. It was just all ice and he kept slipping all over. So, anyways, I kept teasing him on the "Help! I'v fallen and I can't get up!" saying. Well, about two days later, mother in law, hubby and me went out to eat. We were on ice and I just suddenly did the splits. My legs got as far apart as they could and I just stayed there. Hubby had to put mom in the car and get me. Anyways, hope I didn't bore you. Maybe it's a funnier if you were there type of thing. I was wearing tennis shoes and dad was wearing black loafers.
