Child Support Interstate Case Between Georgia and Nevada
by Michele "VIP MEMBER".....................
My son's father lives in Nevada, while we live in Georgia. I originally opened the case in November last year. A hearing was set for July 21st, but I was given no notice by my local office here in Georgia.
Nevada did give me a pin to access case information from their automated system. I found out about the hearing on June 22nd by accessing that system. I then called my Georgia office for information on having a telephonic hearing. Since they have 10 day turn around time, it was the end of July before I received the response "We have contacted Nevada for an update". Needless to say I received no response until I called on July 15th only to find out Nevada must be given at least 30 days notice in order to schedule a telephonic hearing.
I was given a order for $100/month. I called Nevada and Georgia to find out this is a temporary order and if there will be another hearing set. Nevada has advised this is a standing order since the NCP is unemployed and has 3 other minor children to support.
Upon a request from my local case worker, I have sent a letter for my case to be re-evaluated. I have requested the NCP to at least pay for half of childcare, which is $300/month.
Do you have any other suggestions? I've been thinking about hiring a private investigator to find out if the's working under the table. But I just the idea of spending that kind of money without it benefiting my child. Any assistance/advice you can give would be greatly appreciated.
NEW VIP MEMBER CHILD SUPPORT ISSUE..........
My caseworker has done nothing since my case was opened. It is an interstate case, and I've been able to gather more information then she has. I have received no notifications whatsoever. They even annotated on my file that a phone call was made when it was not. I am very frustrated and confused.
I would like to know what I can do get some response from my office. When I call the other state, they do provide me with information, but its' very limited. I would like to escalate the case, but I feel their escalation would do nothing. I'm trying to find some otehr solutions.
