i am receiving child support payments through the county att office. and after a month of not receiving a single penny i called the office and it turns out that they are taking my child support and using it to pay for the fact that i had food stamps for 3 months 2 years ago! is there anything that can be done about this? i don't care if they take my taxes but child support is to help me raise our beautiful 6 yr old daughter. This can't be legal!!

Pretty much the State can do what they want but I would consult an attorney....Good luck....

I receive ktap and as soon as my child support payments start coming through they go directly to the state to refund them for the "help" they've given.

The state gets their money first, no matter what the situation and no matter how much you complain. I've had the same complaint and it doesn't get me anywhere but aggravated!
I do have to say that I worked for a child support office in another town and I've never heard of them taking money back for food stamps. Never!! And I've dealt with child support offices all over the state for 17 years, either by working at offices or trying to get child support. They take money back for K-Tap and the birthing expense, but never have I heard of them taking money back for food stamps!! Just sayin...

I think our child support office is the worst anyway. They stay on the same people and dont worry about others. I have been trying to get support since Oct '09 and the dad didnt show for court so they havent done anything else. Moms wouldnt have to get help from the state if they would do their job and the only ones suffering from the state taking support payments are the children. The only thing the child support workers in Jess Co are doing is making bad situations worse. Just wait til one of them have to be in our shoes, I hope they get screwed like everyone else.

Thats crazy!! In ohio where i live, if you get food stamps or Medicaid they make the father pay for that as well as child support. And all of the hospital bills from the delivery of the child.

It's for someone to help out someone and to do the right thing whenever certain people that work have a hard time acting that ay in their own divorce cases. Lying and manipulating the system(crooked as it may be)so that they can have it their way.

You may want to call them again. They do not take it for foodstamps. The foodstamp program is totally ran by a different division than with social service,like K-tap and your medical card is ran by social services and under law they can take that from support payments. Just think about it, not just women with children get foodstamps, you can be single male and living on your own with low income and qualify for some foodstamps, the elderly on SS qualify for foodstamps(not very much) but you dont see them garnishing peoples checks to pay back the foodstamps or taking the elderlies SS checks. I would call Frankfort and talk to them and double check that thats what theyre taking it out for cause they cant do that. It has to be for your ktap or medical card you had while on foodstamps. And for the person who says keep your legs closed, SHUT THE FUCK UP, you dont know her circumstances, she could of been with him forever and he decided to walk away one day, so unless you know her and know her circumstance again I'll say it, SHUT THE FUCK UP!!!

Kinda sounds like you may have a little more invested in the child support office than just food stamp information. Know her pretty good i presume. Calm down there , Superstar.

All I can say is the daddy's can have kids and the momma's don't pay either. Just sayin'. Sometimes daddy's only see money if and when they decide to go after the momma after months of not paying. Oh they can sure as hell go after a man? How fuc*ed up is that? I'm one of the daddy's and the momma's can not pay too!

I am a single dad and the mom is a deadbeat who hasnt seen our child in over a year. I went to the county attorneys office and filled out all the forms for child support and got the run around for two months every time I called so I finally got a supervisor over Jessamine county and finally got a court date, which the deadbeat didnt show for so they scheduled another one, and she was a no show again!!! The judge set the child support anyway and had a follow up scheduled for the next month, and again shes a no show but they wouldnt back date my child support.....we had another court date for them to do nothing again and no show for the 4th time. Heres the best part, she has never shown up for court and has not paid a penny but the county attorney wont issue a warrant for her!!! I can guarantee if it was the mom going after the dad they would have went after back payments and the first time he was a no show they would have issued a warrant. Good luck on getting anyone from that office to return a call too cause its weeks later!!! They need to do the same for the dads as they do for the moms because the child support is for the child!!!
