My children's father has been on child support since September. Things were moving smoothly until end of December. I haven't received any support since. I also noticed no meetings have been set up and no one has called me about anything. So I left a message and I'm waiting to hear back. Now, I know they will garnish his income tax if he owes, but how long does it normally take to receive that? And if anything happened like they stopped payments or anything wouldn't they let me know. Send out a letter or call or something? Like this is such an inconvenience on me. I have them primarily sometimes solely. I'm paying for all their needs by myself. I just want a little bit of help.
If child support has been ordered by a court and your children's father is in arrears, then you can ask the court to intervene. Unfortunately, the process may take several weeks to months before any money is actually sent to you. You should retain an attorney to address this right away, before your children's father falls further and further behind on payments.
