  • You need to ride child supports behind, call all day long everyday until you get the answers you want. That's what we did the first time and now we never have to call they just get right on it.

  • A judge does that for you.

  • You go to your case worker and have them file. In most states they have to be X amount of dollars behind or so many months (which ever comes first) before they will even attempt to go after the non-paying parent.

  • OP~ He is over $15,000 behind and hasn't paid a dime in 6 months. Child support enforement is not doing anything.

  • You need to contact the attorney general and tell them how much behind he is.. If you don't tell them it will take forever for them to notice. Tell them that you'd like a hearing. Then you'll need to follow up!

  • Keep calling the child support agency, they are the ones who would take care of that. Call your caseworker on a daily basis, until a court date is set. Get an attorney if you have to.
