Why do men get charged a yearly fee for having a CS case against them? What is the yearly fee for?
not all states have that . they can charge by federal law but dont have to. our state doesnt but the state xh lives in does ,they say its a processing fee.
We live in Arkansas, and DH has to pay a yearly fee. We never really understood why there is a fee. I think it's kinda funny a man has to pay CS then have to pay a fee on top of that just for having to pay CS.
In Oregon, if over $500 is collected in the state's fiscal year (Oct-Sept), $25 is taken out of the support amount, so then technically the recipient of the cs is charged.
DH pays through the state and has to pay $3.50 extra every month to go through the state instead of paying BM directly. Bm lied about him paying her CS, so we'll gladly pay the 3.50 to go through the state from now on, but I always thought it was a little ridiculous....do they charge BM for paying her CS? Why does only one side have to pay the processing fee...why not both parties involved? I mean, it's not a lot of money, but still....

My DH was CP of oldest skid. He had money taken out ever year for a fee. I think it was $35 or so. We figured it was just their way of being pissy that a man was actually raising his kid and the BM was paying.

This is the same in NY, unless the recipient is on TANF
