Her husband, who's a pharmacist, has never followed the child support guiddelines. Back in the days in which he actually paid her something, he would give her...like $100 at a time, which as anyone knows, doesn't work when you have to pay RENT at the beginning of the month. The people in DSS in the state of SC have botched her case over and over again; also neglecting to serve him papers; neglecting to notify her of hearings; reducing the child support because he is (voluntarily)_ unemployed. She hasn't gotten a dime from him in months---yet he's had the money to buy an engagement ring; get married; go on a honeymoon; have another baby and file for an annulment from my SIL. His wife is employed. SIL has been chasing hopes and is now in California and is headed to a homeless shelter because her job opportunity didn't work out and she has no money to come home. Her boys are 9 and 11. They cry every day and have several stress-related health issues. Even the SC DSS attorneys won't return calls. She has no where else to turn. We have given her money, but we have our own family to support and the money tree is out of leaves. Does anyone know what I can do to call these people out? Write the governor's office? I mean how can this possibly be legal? What can I do for her? Any advice would be so very much appreciated.
**Update*** She has sent her boys back to SC to live with her mother until she can find a job. I don't think she holds out any hope for child support but I'm going to make some calls, based on your suggestions. Thanks for all the input.Answer Question
