Child Support Arbitration was 30 days ago. Arbitrator asked for additional paperwork to be submitted by both parents and gave us 2 weeks to turn it in. Both of us turned in our paperwork within 8 days.
State court rules say the Arbitrator has 14 days from the hearing to file an award. I figured it would be 14 days after the 2 weeks extension. It's been more than that. Snohomish County Court rules don't provide a time limit. There are no attorney's involved, just the parents and DCS.
Am I going to be waiting for a while or is there a time limit? I'm confused as to when the Arbitrator is required to file the award. I've been overcharged child support for almost a year now. Is there a point where I can request the Arbitrator be forced to file the award?
The other question I would have is would it be appropriate to send a letter to the arbitrator inquiring about the status of the award, cc'ing all parties? Or is filing with the court the first thing I would do?
