govement borrowing from child support?!?Another Update (in green)

In the past 6 weeks I have only received 36.00 total. I am supposed to get 43.00 per week. When i called to ask what was going on all they said was "you will get all you money back" but would not explain where the money was. Today I had to explain to my landlod why i was short on rent, she said every mom that rents from her had the same problem, apparently the goverment needed to borrow the money for something!!!!! Luckily i dont fully depend on my child support but i know alot of moms do, isn't there somewhere else to borrow the money from besides single moms!?! Or at least WARN us so we can have backup plans!

Its one thing for a week or so, but 6 weeks????

 

I am not recieveing 36.00 per week, that is all i have been given total in the 6 weeks. I know they are taking the correct amount out of his checks, I had him show me his pay stubs.  I am not the only one this happened to, It has affected everyone in my town that receives childsupport, The Child support office will not explain where the money went o when we will get it back, they just claim we will be payed back.

 

My mom just called and said she had metioned it to someone at work, and they had seen it on the news. So I'm guessing its the whole state (indiana) Theres are multiple lawsuits agianst the goverment now because of it....I knew it had to be wrong. Look at it this way, Child support comes straight fom the mans check to the mother. It is in no way goverment aid, it is a man providing for his childen he helped create. So by taking our child support there pretty much just dipping there hand into the mans paychecks. They already take taxes out, they have no right to just decide they need the money more and take what they want. If thats the case then where is the line? Who says they cant just decide to take it out of your paycheck one day?

They put it in a bank acct and let it grow interest for a month, and then they send you the money, after putting YOUR money to work for them

Well that doesn't seem right.

Normally they only do it on amounts over $500, but I have heard of them holding smaller amounts. I e mailed and asked them about an amount of child support that was deducted from arrears but I hadn't yet received, and this is what they told me

In nebraska you don't get the whole amount ordered. They take like a "handling fee" and put the rest on a bank card type thing. They were trying to get dh (df at the time) for cs when ds was born 4 years ago and that's what the paperwork I got mailed. It took forever for me to get them to stop trgying to take cs from him. We've lived together for almost 8 years

I have never heard of that happening before. Maybe he is paying less in (or they aren't taking enough out- I have had that happen to me) & that is why you are getting less? 

On a side note... if you getting shorted $7 a week in child support means that you can't pay your rent you need to reevaluate your finances.
