For the second time, I find that child support services has suspended my license and reported to the credit beaureas that I am delinquent in child support payments. The company I work for has withheld from my paycheck for nearly 3 years. They were purchased by a new company and "hired" me into the new company. Last time I changed jobs, I contacted Placer County Child Support Services to let the know of the job change. I asked if I need to make payments myself until the new order takes affect and the representative said that this would not be necessary. The order would automatically include any arrears to get caught up. This turned out to be problematic. Shortly after, DCSS suspended my license and reported delinquencies on my credit report without any notice. It took over six months to get the issue fixed. I would dispute on my credit report and they would fix it, only to re-report it the following month. They confirmed over the phone several times that no amount was due.
For The second time, this is happening again. This time, I did not listen the DCSS and began making payments myself for several months, on time, until a new order was received at my job.
I see the problem—which would bother anyone—- and I see that you handled it well. What I don’t see is a question. “acting within legal action“ is not clear.
I can only say I think you’ve handled this admirably. I’m repositioning under child support.
All of Ms. Straus’ responses are offered as useful information, based solely upon the facts stated in the question, and are not to be relied upon as alegal opinion. They may not be what you wished to hear, They do not create an attorney-client relationship. Ms. Straus has been licensed to practice law in California for 34 years. Ms. Straus regrets that she does not provide follow up free advice via email. She also regrets that blunt responses may be taken as "rude" by those who wished a different opinion. Good luck.
