INDIANA laws; concerning child support, taxes and visitations?

I pay the child support. 0 every two weeks on a .25 an hour salary. I currently live in New Jersey and my two boys in Indiana. I have my 0 deducted automatically now. When I moved out here before it was "court ordered" I was paying 0 every two weeks, again not court ordered. Just sending.

I was able to have some of that counted towards support; However they want back child support. Approx in the amount of ,000.00. I’m getting ready to file my taxes and I was going to send my information to my x and file jointly or what not…

I was confused on how they wanted to do it, I’ve tried contacting my lawyer to get a run down, sounds they want me to send all my info to my x then to pay for filing that then to file here in New Jersey and then pay for that.

I’m tempted to just FILE here! period and then pay my x the ,000 owed and call it a day. Now my question is this…

Why can’t I claim one of the boys? there is two involved? both mine. I was told at anytime if you are behind on support you can not? so does that mean when I am caught up I can? and legally can they, if I’m caught up on support, claim both boys?

I thought it had to be shared?…

also I’m not given visitations, even though I played a major role in raising my boys. They are both very young; However I moved because of a job and happier circumstances…regardless of why the move. I’ve made attempts to go back to Indiana to visit and pay my support.

I feel the courts did an injustice to me and was unfair…

Can someone assist in this matter?

as of now the divorce is final and everything else is "final" I was told I can fight for a new judge/new attorney, etc and take it back to court. Must likely I will, of course; however between travel expenses, paying my attorney off, etc, etc…things are expensive.

I was also told to jump through more "hoops" that if I get a 2-3 bedroom and go visit in Indiana every 5-6 weeks I may have a better shot of getting some type of visitation, maybe a week or two and even that is crazy.

My x is making it to where I can only call my boys TWICE a week and a SET TIME???…when was this legal? and then when I made the call one eve they wanted to make small talk to me and tell me the boys were ASLEEP!

this is Monday, Thursdays and only at 7:30pm…

they don’t even have the kids half the time as they are going to other peoples homes. The argument, "I have to work…I work two jobs, etc, etc"…

some of that is complete BS & show…

I’m upset at how it has turned out. I’ve jumped through as many hoops as I could have from the start and nothing is working. I knew I should have packed the boys up and brought them to New Jersey with me but was afraid they could say "Oh that’s child endangerment" and then never have the kids, again…

who knows how people look at things.

it’s a frustrating matter.

me doing what I can and not getting what I deserve. I’m even willing to pay the support to the x but have the custody of the kids. All I want is the kids!

but I too feel they are making .00 an hour at one job, me .25 they get 0.00 every two weeks and they work a second job, making more an hour than I do at my ONE!…

so how can they claim both kids and claim this and that and get away with it?

it’s like fraud to me.

if anything it’s BS!…

again suggestions, answers would be helpful.
Okay. I see two responded. So let me clear this up, real quick. B/c this is why I didn’t put who I was male or female. You assume I’m male? right.

But let’s say the roles are reversed. Say I’m female and this has happened. So now how do you answer this question? …

Now do I become the bad person b/c I left my kids in a state where they are familiar with their home, family, etc…

is it okay for a man to just walk out but for there not to be an "excuse" for a woman?

Just thought I would add to this.

So would that statement be. Put the boot to him? or… injustice for MOTHERS too? it’s not just the fathers.
