LOL.. Good luck to you. I live in Anderson Co, and all they do is threaten my ex husband, but they never really do anything to him. I've basically raised my daughter on my own, I can't depend on him or Maximus Child Support. Best wishes.

Same here..lol. He always quits. But don't worry hun, it'll eventually catch up to him. And what's sad is, the kids realize they could care less if they have food and clothes. So in the long run, it's only hurting them. I actually called Maximus one day and told them they needed to get off their lazy butts and do the damn job they get paid to do. It aggravates me to no end.

I know, it's crazy how the system works. My lawyer actually told me to sign up on AFDC so that I could get my child support going. If you're on AFDC they send you your child support, and then Maximus will go after the non custodial parent. But the only downside is, if the NCP pays more than AFDC, you have to give the difference back to AFDC...it's a bunch of hassle and confusion if you ask me. But on a brighter note, if AFDC sends you child support money, which is usually put on your EBT card (if you have one) and the NCP doesn't pay, they will have to pay that money back that AFDC gives you every month...so,look into it if you haven't already. Might help Maximus get their butts in gear. Oh, and do you have to call the ones in Oak Ridge?? That's the ones I have to deal with, and they are rude as crap. I hate having to call them. I don't feel like they're on my side at all.

Yeah, I deal w oak ridge and the only one down there that's ever nice is April...yeah...when I went to theie office bout a yr ago....bc I was makin $10 hr and my ex was not working they tried to tell me that i was gonna have to pay him like $40 a mth child support...i said bullshit...take me to court and have a judge tell me that...i wldnt sign it...that was ridculous...it was bc they were basing off our income and days spent w each parent and he was not gettin maleighya like its ordered so I wasn't gonna let that shit go down...its crazy that u hear stories bout how strict they are but they don't do crappy for me...and Thx for info on afdc, but they wont help me bc they say I make too much $...I'm on unemployment and they use that and what hes supposed to pay and say I make too much...I went off at dhs...told them that maybe if I was a low life piece of shit and laid around on my ass all the time theyd help me...it sux how the systems are...if u don't do crap they'll help u, but if ur tryin to help urself, but need that extra help, they wont do crap...

OK, I will be straight up..AC system does not work what so ever..I really dont see where putting a parent in jail for not paying child support solves anything. In 10 years I have recieved 500 dollars. They need somebody in there to get things running rigt

CONT....THEY NEED TO SET UP A WORK PROGRAM TO GET THESE PARENTS TO PAY. OR THE STATE SHOULD PAY US WHAT OUR ORDERED AMOUNT IS. AND THEN THEY COULD HAVE THE NC PARENT OUT THEIR PICKING UP TRASH INSTEAD OF INMATES.STOP SENDING BILLIONS OVER SEAS AND HELP US

I have been dealing with the child support division for 25 years now, I can't make this stuff up. My ex-husband of 25 years has paid less than 2000.00. I have been to court over 30 times,his file is the largest in Anderson County they to bring it on wheels. Has over 15 contemt of coutrts, never has not 1 time ever been picked up lives less than 25 miles radius,lives in nice house,car,good job. Never recived any tax return monies. Last week went to office in Oak Ridge could not believe had to talk to lady behind a glass window,acted like she could have gave 2 shits about me , they make you feel like trash. I'm collage educated, my 2 great sons are the best things that ever happened and I made sure they were never without,but law is law . I really don't care about the money now , it's some day I hope someone will pick up my files and find it embarassing by what they see. FYI I did put lean against my exhusbands inheritince from a dead aunt and won. But 24,000.00 was not a drop in the bucket compared to 200,000. We should call Don Dare from WATE tv and have invistigate.

lmao they are not trying to get the other parent to pay child support. they tell em that they will do time if they dont then they give em a slap on the wrist when they go to court. my son is 14 his father has paid 2000 on him. has seen him twice in his whole life. But the way i look at it he is the one missing out on our sons life. and my son has a wonderful father figure that has been there with him unconditionally!!!

I have lived in clinton for 3 years now and with maximus just as long. After 3 years they sent me a wage garnaishment assignment after 2 months of no payments I called. They said he must have quit but they have been trying to serve him with papers to go to court since August 07. Why in the world cant they find out where he lives. They sure take his taxes every year cant they get something from that. Plus he just got his license back from having a dui why cant they pull that address up? I dnt know everyone elses situation but good luck to you all. I know being a single parent we are strong cause we have been made to be that way. BUt we need help and hopefully we can get it one day. Good Luck!!!!

In any of your situations, did the anderson county judge enforce the 50/50 parenting plan and if so do you stick to it? Did you feel like this was fair to your child?

Yes!!! I had to go to parenting classes. My ex doesn't want anything to do with his daughter. Didn't even call on her birthday. I do my part, but he doesn't do his...What would be fair to my child is if her father would be a parent, but that will never happen. As the old saying goes, you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink!!

I am a dad that actually pays my child support even though we have joint custody. My problem with the system is if I make more to help improve the living conditions of my family i am penalized for it. I have worked hard for what I got but my ex has figured out that she can work a minimum wage job and its ok cause if I make more she makes more cause my child support goes up. How is that fair to the parent that works their but off to provide for the child and current family?
