Child support arrears are being garnished from my wages. It’s a burden that affects me and my daughter and her children too. As my credit continues to suffer, I’m finding myself unable to extend any financial assistance to my daughter who has just given birth to twins. But it’s not just any ordinary birth, it’s an emergency c-section because the twins were born premature and face multiple life-threatening complications.
My heart breaks with every passing day that I’m unable to help my daughter with the mounting medical bills, care for her newborn twins, and provide her with the support she needs during this difficult and trying time. All because I’m shackled by the weight of my unpaid child support.
Even though I know I should be doing more, making ends meet is difficult when half of my paycheck goes towards my past-due child support payments. The remaining amount barely suffices for necessities like food, rent, and utilities. I’m unsure about how much longer I can keep up with the payments and the constant harassment from debt collection agencies.
I never intended to fall behind on my payments. However, a series of unfortunate events, including job losses and health issues, left me with no choice but to prioritize my basic needs first. Despite my efforts, I could barely keep up with my child support payments and was eventually drowned in debt.
And now here I am, staring at my low credit score, feeling helpless and demoralized. I had always promised my daughter that I would be there for her whenever she needed me. But as much as I want to, I’m unable to keep that promise right now.
My child support arrears have robbed me of the ability to help my daughter and her newborn twins during a time when they need me the most. It’s a constant reminder of my past failures and mistakes, and it weighs heavy on my shoulders every day.
If there’s anything I can do to make it right, I will do it. I am reaching out and pleading for leniency and understanding, not just for myself but for my daughter and her family. Please help me make a difference in their lives, and I promise to pay it forward however I can, whenever I can. https://paypal.me/JoseY134?country.x=US&locale.x=en_US
