We will discuss this shortly....
Our Child Support America team is amazed at the emails we receive for people who need legal help with their child support situation. We hear stories of all kinds, from both custodial and non-custodial parents alike. Some of the stories are heart wrenching.
That’s why we decided to work in partnership with a legal service to assist people just like you. We wanted to help good people who have a lot of problems, but not a lot of money to solve them. Our child support lawyer legal program is very affordable and has helped thousands of clients including one of our own.
Listen to a true story from one of our team members ....
Hello all, my name is Doug and I am a staff member of the Child Support America.com team. I just wanted to share my personal story of how our legal service has helped me with a serious child support situation I once had.
I have two different child support cases. Both cases were opened in Ohio. In 1997 my oldest son and his mother moved back to Virginia to be closer to her family. This is when my nightmare began. Although my case was originally opened in Ohio, My son’s mother opened another case in the state of Virginia.
This is called an interstate case and is perfectly legal. In a nutshell, an interstate case is when one party moves to another state and both states work together to ensure child support is paid and received. This caused a major problem for me that only a child support lawyer could resolve.
Here’s what happened....
For ten years the Virginia child support agency was not aware that I had received a modification on my original Ohio order. So they were reporting on my credit that I owed almost $14,000 in back child support better known as arrears.
I had received a modification in Ohio, but my case worker never forwarded that information to my case worker in Virginia. They simply kept adding the old child support amount to my balance for years and then reported it every month to the credit bureaus. Not only did this negatively affect my credit, it appeared that I had two different cases even though it was for the same child. On my credit report it looked like I had a case in Ohio and a case in Virginia.
This made me look terrible when I applied for jobs, and when I was trying to get loans. That mistake haunted me for years and I didn’t even know it until about a year ago. It was very serious and I needed help fast.
I contacted a local child support lawyer in my city. He told me that my situation was complicated and that I needed to consult with an attorney in Virginia. This was way over my head and way too expensive to say the least. I felt overwhelmed and it seemed like I would loose this battle. I almost gave up, until I came across an affordable legal plan that changed everything. Simply click the link below for details.
