    • Legally, SSI can not be garnished for child support.  It is a program based upon financial need, so I would question the child support order - but the court can order you to pay what ever it thinks is appropriate.  Look for a non-profit attorney group and see if they will look at the child support order for you.

      Good luck.

    • hello, I am a devorced mom of 4 . I recieve ssi as well. I do believe that child support should be paid .I have a 16 year old daughter that I recieve child support for . however I dont think they should be allowed to take child support out of yopur ssi money . maybe you should see if their is a program through ssi that will pay your kids without taking it out of your check.good luck with that.

    • There must be free or very low cost legal help for someone in your position. I’d really do an online search - everything is just so global these days. I’m willing to bet if you search online there’s legal aid for women somewhere.
      Good luck

    • I’m a mom who pays child support too.  Doesn’t matter what your source of income is, they‘re going to take it for child support.  I work three and four jobs to make a living.  A third of my income goes to pay child support and is not tax deductible.  

      I am lucky that when I remarried, I got a man who keeps a roof over my head because on what I make after child support is paid, I would be homeless.

      I think the whole child support system in this country is broken and needs to be fixed.
