Every year I get a check from child support...a tax refund intercept. In my state I have to wait 29 days to get this money, which is usually a few hundred dollars (but hey, Im not complaining). The state does this so that the other party can have the chance to dispute the action, which has never happened in my case. Once the money is released, the state takes $25 for holding the money in the first place.
I know $25 does not seem like much, but that is shoes and socks for my daughter at the very least. I get tax intercept because this person owes over $30,000 in back child support. I got his stimulus check last year. Ususally I get no regular support other than a little here and there.
Anyhow I am curious what the other waiting periods are in other states,a and if you feel as I do that this needs to change. If there are families that can use that money, why hold it?

She is talking about the FEE! and no I think HE should have to pay the fee. But then most child support laws seem to protect or at least help the deadbeat parent!
