Question about arrears

Submitted by concernedfather on Mon, 05/19/2014 - 12:45

I live out of state and just had a phone conference about my child support. 

My children live in Bucks Co, PA so the case was handled there.


My child support went up $18.00 a month, but I was told to pay over $1300 in arrears. 


I have been on time with all my payments because it gets taken out of my check. How are arrears determined and why should I pay all that money?


Thanks in advance.
