I got divorced in 2008 in Colorado. I have 2 children now 15 & 17. My ex-husband moved to Chicago in 2010, is remarried with 2 children under 2 yrs old. I have full custody and the 3 of us now reside in Georgia. I applied with Ga DSS September 2014. It took them well over a year to send my case to ILL as a interstate case even though they said they would do that to begin with. All I get is the run around. My ex-refuses to make payments (I have received only 3 in over 3 years) and won't help me in anyway at all even with medical expenses which our court order states he has to. He is about $35k in arrears.
I just found out that ILL has my case tagged for closure due to interstate noncooperation, Ga is "looking into that now". I can not get these states to collect for me and I need advice or a lawyer and help. I believe I need a Chicago Lawyer, I again reside in GA. Thank you.
There are a couple of ways to go about this and you can almost certainly shift the attorneys fees to him so you'll be reimbursed and it will end up costing you nothing. Call a lawyer in Illinois.

You need to hire an attorney in Illinois, and that attorney needs to register the Colorado judgment here. Real question is does exist husband have employment in Illinois so support can be deducted from his income. There are other things that can be done like having his drivers license suspendef
