Okay, so I applied for child support enforcement on my ex as our daughter is almost 5 and he has sent her a total of maybe $300 her entire life. He always has some excuse after the other for why he can't help (the most amusing to me being "I have other children to support" when he has a wife who can but doesn't work and I was raising two kids on my own.... case closed, I win that argument). I never had a petition for child support filed/created because I honestly didn't know how, but as soon as I found out how to get help I filed (sadly just recently).
I FINALLY (after applying for help on May3rd, 2010) received a notification update as of yesterday that my case has been referred to court.
What happens now? Since he is in another state do I have to go to that state or does he have to come here? Is this court date to establish a petition for child support payments? How long will it take to actually start getting payments?
