Child Support Situation In Ohio
Here is the situation: Divorce was granted to mother of 4 under-aged children in June of 2009. Ex-husband always worked to keep up the family. Ex-wife stayed home and help raised a total of 7 children. Ex-wife was granted child support for approx 1,000 dollars monthly per the courts. During that same month, ex-husband was incarcerated for burglary, drugs, and multiple unpaid traffic fines.
After 6 months in jail, he was placed in a drug rehab center and his release is pending on April 30, 2010. He stated in court during the divorce trial that he was not going to pay that *&%#*(ex-wife) no child support.
This woman has been living on hand-outs to raise her children. The welfare office has not been much help. Ex-wife was told that she will have to pay ex-husband back taxes out of her income tax check. My questions is what is she suppose to do? She has worked some odd jobs through the agencies, and companies going out of business with very little success. She can not afford a lawyer.
I also feel that she and her family maybe in jeopardy of his criminal acts. Rumor has it that he is also a "narc" for the police dept in a certain county in Ohio. I am concern of her safety.
What can she do in order to guarantee or make sure that he help in raising those children.
