my ex was instructed to pay child support (including 2 months backpay), plus mandatory additional support for 50/50 childcare. He has only paid the childcare payments (as he has been prior to court hearing), but has not contributed any money for the actual child support because of poor advice he has received from friends and the hopes of having the amount 'modified'. I have contacted the child support services department and applied for "enforcement", but this takes up to 6 months to process. I am trying my best to be as calm and patient as possible without adding fuel to the fire, but I am scraping by and the kids are barely fit their clothes anymore. is there anything else i can do? Is there anywhere i can go to report him?
