Your post leaves out some pertinent information which would be helpful in responding to your post. For example, did you get notice from DCSS that they were paying the aid and would seek reimbursement from you? Did they give you notice of a hearing regarding support? Did you get notice of garnishment and an opportunity to object? Did you object? Did the time to object expire? What is the time period during which support was being paid while separated? Time frame during which she returned to the home without reconciliation and reconciliation until now ? …a year, six months? Your first move should be consulting privately with an attorney experienced in family law so that your particular fact situation can be addressed. In general, you are responsible for the support of your children and liable for reimbursement to the state for its payment in support of your children. You may have some recourse against the ex for receiving aid knowing she was not entitled to, if that turns out to be the case.
