I pay child support for my three, almost four-year-old son. My son's mother uses daycare during her time with him and those costs are included in my support obligation. I just found out yesterday that my son's mother's daycare provider hasn't received payment from her for four months, now owing the daycare provider over $2,000. The daycare provider hasn't even received my portion of the payment (%53), which means my money has gone elsewhere. A few days ago I received an updated financial affidavit because I was awarded an extra overnight with my son in May. Included with the financial affidavit was a letter stating the daycare provider provided child support registery with a notarized document stating my son's mother was paying $150 a week. Obviously this is not the case considering my son's mother has not paid daycare in four months. Is there anything I can do about this?
If your son's mother is falsifying documents with notarization, then she could have some issues. You can request that you pay the child support directly and let you get the credit on the worksheet. How old is the date of the notarized document compared to your finding out that she hasn't been paying? What does her Sworn Financial Statement state? This looks like she's made a curable mess, but sometimes it costs more to clean up the mess than it's worth.
