Court Hearing Date For Child Support Interstate Case
I am a single mom of three children. I currently live in Dayton, OH., but was born and raised in Chicago,IL. My kids father lives in Illinois and I presently have an interstate case going. I have been trying to collect child support for almost three years now. I am constantly on the phone with the Child Support office here to inquire on if a hearing date has been set. I have been told that residence and employment has been verified for him, but they continue to say that Illinois will not respond to any of their transmittal's, phone calls, faxes etc. to see if they need any additional information or to find out the status.
I do not understand why it is taking so long for Illinois to set a hearing date for me if they have all the information they need to go forth. I have provided everything from SS# to license number to help with this and I still cannot get a hearing date. My children are 11 and 7 years old. I am afraid that they will turn 18 before we are able to obtain any support. I think it is truly unfair that some of these fathers get off Scott free, while the mother's have to struggle to provide for them. Everyone is always talking about the mothers never try to do anything to get these men to stand up and support their kids, but when we do, this is the response that we get. Please advice on what I can do next to get some help for my children and I.
