How Do I Get Georgia To Enforce Child Support?
I live in Alabama, and my ex lives in Georgia. He agreed to pay me $75.00/wk in child support because at the time of our divorce he worked for himself and did not pay taxes! He never payed! I went to my DHR, and applied for help with enforcing my child support. They helped get action started, but he still did not pay regular. Alabama sent my case to Georgia to get help. Georgia took over my case. This was a few YEARS ago. He went to court, and the Judge ordered him to pay the $75.00/wk plus $25.00/wk in arrears, or backpay. He has only payed $400.00 total a month just a couple of times. Georgia finally locked him up in December 2008. He got out after a couple of weeks, and still has not payed the total amount /wk or monthly. He will turn 44 years old next month, and lives with his parents. He has always lived with his parents. He owns heavy equipment, dump truck, etc. and works every week. He has NO BILLS to pay. He goes to truck stops and stores, and plays cherry machines for hours inserting $20 bills. This is accurate information and I have the proof.
He tells me that he will never pay child support, and says that Georgia will never do anything about it. At this time I have had to move in with my parents because I do not make enough to pay my bills, and have had to turn to help from DHR to get Food Stamps to feed my child. I do not have money for Attorney fees to do anything about my child support. I just keep hoping that Georgia will step up, and do something about him. He has payed me $50.00 in the last 3 months! Why hasn't anyone payed this any attention?? I call my case worker, and he says he has sent Georgia memos, and tried to contact them. I tried to call Georgia myself, (the child support hotline) and they tell me that they cannot give me any information on my own case. What is it going to take for Georgia to do anything about this??
