Can I Get A Break From Ex Avoiding Child Support?
I have been divorced for 4 years this month and have a 7-year-old son together. In July I finally got a court date for him not paying Child Support. In WI you have to wait 120 days without any support before they will legally do anything.
He was held in contempt of court for not notifying the child support agency of his address change and for not paying child support. I hadn't received a payment since the end of January. The judge told him he has until the 5th of every month to pay $402.00 or he will go to jail, either voluntary or a warrant for his arrest.
I only received $184.00 as of the 5th of August so I called my child support agency and asked "now what." Apparently he has another 10 days to make a payment before the Judge will sign a warrant! So not the 5th of every month the 15th now. So then I called them on the 15 and said "not what." She said he sent in a check but did not sign it so we are sending it back and we will call him to make sure he sends it back.
So now not the 15th but when. So they are giving him another chance. Now he is a week behind for August already, wonder how he is going to get away with it this time. The judgment for back child support is over $7300.00 and he only has to pay $10 on it a month. That will take forever.
I cant get his tax returns intercepted because he has another child who he had while we were still married that I didn’t know about and owes her $11,000.00 to but nether of the parents have the child. My ex’s mother has been raising him for the last 3 years and he has not sent a penny to her.
They keep letting him get away with this and he does not understand that it is affecting his children. He loves his kids so much that instead of paying his child support he got his kid’s names tattooed on his fore arms.
