Do you have problems getting child support

I think all the states need to fix the system how about you

  • I literally laughed out loud when I read this question! I was married for 14 yrs with 3 kids. We got divorced and within a year he had quit his job and started working under the table so he didn't have to pay support. I know where he is, who he is working for and still they tell me there is nothing they can do. I think the Child Support Enforcement Agency is a huge joke and a wast of time and money. They sent me a letter telling me since they cannot locate him in the past 3 yrs they are closing his case. His tab will still run, but they won't waste time looking for him they ever did in the first place. I think children of dead beat parents should get social security.

  • No, my childs father gives me child support and were married and live together and I get $450 a month just for her and he set it up so if something happens he is never behind. I guess I am lucky

  • I get some from time to time from my ex. Nothing like I'm supposed to get though. He keeps on quitting his job so he doesn't have to pay it. I'm just glad when I do get it.
