Looking for attorney for a plea hearing on public and talks and obstruction of officer

I am in the middle of a child support case in Morgantown. The mother told me 5 years ago that she wanted nothing from me and just wanted left alone so I honored her wishes. About a year ago she decided to file for child support. She is lying about so many things that I have physical proof of. The problem is that I don't qualify as low income but she is taking almost 40% of what I bring home each week and I have 2 other children at home. I don't have the money to pay for an attorney but I don't qualify for assistance. Is there anything that I can do?

Important Information

Legal Aid Funding
Legal aid professionals and organizations oftentimes receive government funding for taking on cases with those who cannot afford attorneys. For the most part, funding is limited so legal aid entities can only take on a limited amount of cases. Qualifications are often rigid.
