Who Do I Contact For Help For Back Child Support?
by Robert Reynolds
(Orange Park, FL)
My x-wife has never paid a dime of child support and is $16,000 behind. I have been to the local child support enforcement office on 20 different occasions and asked for a status update. Every time I go they say that they do not have a good address on her. Each time I go I bring a copy of the latest arrest report, and court documents showing where the courts say she is and in fact where she has to be or else she would be in jail. I am very polite and patient and seem to be the only one who cares about getting some accountability in place. They never update the records even though I show them legal court records. I have been told over and over from the different case workers that I shouldn’t expect any support because my x-wife is a crack head. I had no idea that the law does not apply to crack heads.
It is a 3rd degree felony to under Florida Law to not attempt to pay for your children’s support when the amount is over $5,000.00. I have taped conversations where child support officers have told me that the post master will not confirm my x-wife’s address. Florida Department of Corrections clearly post her permanent address and county court records and it clearly show where she lives. I have recorded conversations from case workers who state I am a man so I should just take care of kids and let it go.
Can you help?
