  • yep. it sounds like you might know where he is stationed? ...call them up and let them know what's going on. He has a good chance of not only having his wages garnished but also getting in trouble!

  • Contact the child support office; they may be a screw-up in their end.

  • I agree with Anon. 1:19. Contact the miltary, he has no choice if he want to pay or not. They'll make him pay.

  • Do you have a child support order??? If you dont you need to get one. If you do all you have to do is call whatever branch he is in and send them a copy and they just take it out. The military does not play games on child support at all.

  • find out his unit and what base he's stationed at. Give the ole base a call, they track him down, he gets into trouble you get your money.

  • You can contact JAG if you know where he's stationed. They can give you some legal advice, and if you know his unit, call his 1st sargeant and tell him what's going on.
