I live in one state and my dd's father lives in another. Our daughter is 8 years old and while I had a CS order open until 2004, he paid very little due to him going to school full-time and having low-paying jobs. We went to court together and I decided to clear his CS obligations until he was finished with school (since I saw no use in him going to jail and I was making decent money to support our dd). He told me in 3 years he would be well on his feet. Well, it has been almost 5 years and he is still not finished with school. Meanwhile, I am struggling financially and really need the help from him.
My question is, how do I reopen the case now that I live in another state? The caseworker we had spoken to said I only need to let them know and they will reopen it but that was when I lived there. Now what?
Advice or similar experiences?
