Dad Owes Child Support and Caseworker not on my Side!!
Here is my situation: I'm on medical disability. I make less then $1,200.00 a month with myself and my child (dependent). My x hasn't paid child support since Dec and that was just backpayment. He currently owes $4,000.00 in child support. When I called the state caseworker-she said that he doesn't really owe that much that there are fathers who owe $80,000.00 or more. Apparently, in NJ $4,000.00 is NOTHING to cry over. I said that's fine-but this isn't about those cases, this is MY case and I'm sick, and I am on medical disability. I do not recieve food stamps, medicaid, nothing. I said I need this child support-then she gave her story how she's worked since her son was 2 months old-met a great husband, since he's passed away she's got a pension, blah blah blah. She's got a great job-I was polite and said thank you for sharing your story but what does this have to do with me and getting my x husband to pay his court ordered support? If I was well enough to work I would be working! How can you tell me $4,000.00 is not that much? Maybe to her but to me I could really use that money to buy my child pants which he needs for school, food, basic necessities.
