An Ohio Attorney Who Claims that Child Support Obligations are “Always” Modifiable

The letter below was submitted by me (Tony Fantetti) via a law firm’s web site user-input form. On that site, an Ohio attorney claims that child support is “always” modifiable if there exists a material change of circumstance for the child, and that’s a patently false statement. Will the material change in circumstances involving my home having been foreclosed on and ordered to be auctioned off at an upcoming sheriff’s sale, and the fact that I lost my job guarantee that I can have my child support obligation lowered? Absolutely not!

The only thing that seems guaranteed at this point is an upcoming felony indictment. I will explain in a forthcoming post and prove that although I am “100 percent current” in my child support payments, the Hamilton County Child Support “Extortion” Agency has secured a lien against me in the state of Ohio in a false affidavit that states I am in arrears, when in fact I am not. I can and will prove my claims, and for all to see.

The lies being espoused by the State of Ohio, the Hamilton County Child Support Enforcement Agency (CSEA) as well as those of Ohio’s 88 county child support enforcement agencies (CSEAs) must be exposed, and the truth needs to be told. Therefore, we are excited to announce that we are bringing forth another website dedicated solely to the issues (both truths and lies) enveloping Ohio’s child support machinery. The site was professionally designed and built, and is nearing completion. We intend to mass email thousands of people to announce the identity and location of the site within two weeks.


As President of Ohio Council for Fathers Rights, and as a non-custodial parent who has been bankrupted by an outrageously high child support order, your website causes me grave concern.

It states, “Child support is always modifiable if a material change in the circumstances occurs for the child or the parent.”

Counselor, that statement couldn’t be further from the truth, and I am appalled by your claims. As you are well aware, the statutes are written so as to say the court “may” consider the prescribed statutory factors when considering downward deviations in child support modifications. The statutes don’t mandate that the court “shall” consider said factors. As I’m sure you are well aware, the courts generally don’t utilize discretion that’s favorable to an obligor who is requesting a downward modification in their child support order.

That said, I’d sincerely appreciate it, if you were to reword your claims so as to accurately reflect what transpires in Domestic Relations and Juvenile Courtrooms across the state.

Your website as presently worded gives the false impression that you can have an obligor’s support obligation lowered should they simply retain you, and pay you for your services.

Are you willing to offer a money back guarantee?
