– from Matthew Q. in St. Francis, WI
My wife and I divorced several years ago and she was awarded custody of our two children. However, the children have spent most of the time with me. She was awarded child support but because I have primarily taken care of the children, I was unable to support them physically and still pay the full amount of child support to her. I fell behind. Now we decided that I will have custody of the children, and she will pay me support. Will I receive a credit toward the arrearage?
