i have been supplying support for my daughter since birth for 17 years. My daughters mother has been collecting child support from child support agency for this whole period. She has kept my whereabouts from them and also did not inform me of the action against me. to continue her payments from both parties. I agreed to pay from the date I was notified Jan 2015. I am litigating the previous amount and penalties. Is this fraud on her part?
If you have made payments, you need to show proof of it, Either way, talk to an attorney on this site to help you and good luck.
Yes, if she was receiving public assistance and collecting money from you and telling the government that she didn't know where you were, she has committed fraud.
