I'll tell ya exactly how. When you owe back support all you have to do is " keep the system happy" as Todd longmire says and pay a little amount to stay out of jail. I go thru this every time I go and its bull crap.

I was there this past Thursday. Sat there for 3 hours waiting to see if him or his atty would show up. Of course they didn't, so I have to go back in May. The deadbeat parents and the state play this little game that does nothing but deprive the children and keep them from going to jail where they belong. Kinda makes you wonder if there are some kickbacks going under the table.

I agree. I have seen some parents who couldn't pay because they were out of job get nailed to the wall, and others who simply don't pay because they don't want to get away with a slap on the wrist. A lot of inconsistencies.

Get you a lawyer and sue for the child support. My lawyer got me $ 21,000.000. At $600.00 month it will go through the courts they take a fee but it is well worth it. If you don't get a lawyer, you may never get your money. Good Luck.

Yes I agree one hundred percent. But what I don't get is if my husbands ex wife is getting money every month why make him go every three months but people who owe like 19k never have to go just don't understand

I have been divorced for 20 yrs married 14,four children,they were 5,3,1,and I was six months pregnet.When we divorced I was awarded $191.00 a month for support.I have collected under s 1000.00.He had a wreck under the use of meth in a direct tv van in Ga.He is disabled now and draws a check.When this happened he owed his kids 179,000.00 with interest ,but since all our kids were of age the court decided they would whip his bill clean.Two months after he got disablity he sent cards to each one to my address....said he had a lot to fix.First time he's ever let us know his address in all these years.When they refused to see him he called me and told me it was my fault because I failed to teach them to respect their father.Than he asked me to come home to me cause he needed help after his brain injury.Well....after I got off the floor...lol...I told him his problem was he believed he had a family.....but we know he doesn't. I shared this so all you can see....it's not about the children...or whats right..or duty.It's about who can beat the system....and who the system cheats.I trully wish all you luck.
