Getting The Past Child Support Owed
My husband and I were divorced in 1981. We have two children together. The oldest was 4 years old and the youngest was 2 years old at the time. He was ordered to pay $365 a month through the court to me. He only paid one child support payment the whole time, of which the court has records of this. I was having to work two jobs just to try to keep food on the table for my kids, while he had a high paying job as a computer programmer. He saw our kids maybe once or twice a year, though I would have let him see them whenever he wanted since he is their dad.
I never wanted to pursue the child support matter too strongly because I wanted my kids to have a father and was afraid that he wouldn't want anything to do with them if I pursued the child support very hard. Now I'm realizing I should have because he still doesn't care if he ever sees them. Plus I was never able to get ahead in life because I never had time to pursue any kind of higher education because of working at least two jobs all the time. I was wondering if it was possible to still get him to pay the back child support some how. Any type of help and information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your help,
