ORS

I go through ORS for my child support payments and its really ridiculous how inconsistent the payments are!  My ex gets paid on the 5th and 20th of every month.  Yet for the 20th of January I am yet to be paid.  Now he is going to get paid tomorrow and I am sure that the money wont come!  There was even a time that I went a full month without any child support and than it all randomly showed up. 

So many people tell me not to count on the child support and just take it as a bonus, but its hard not to count on it.  So who do I need to get mad at? lol ORS or his payroll department?.  I am just really frustrated.  I can see a fluctuation in payments as far as a few days goes, but weeks and even a full month is just getting out of hand.

I dont know what ORS is but I have been having the same problem. Im going to call my case worker at Friend of the Court today and find out wth is going on. I know its them and not the exes employer because I always get my child support two days after he gets paid but for the last almost year foc has been holding cs the last week of every month and gives it to me the following week. Alittle aggervating when your expecting it but no biggie. Well for the last two months they have been holding the last cs payment of the month and not giving it to me until my next cs payment is due. Then for January they didnt give me a cs check for the last week and Im still waiting to get that one and the one I should have gotten last friday. Ive had enough of this now so Im calling my case worker.

What is ORS?  Contact your ex's employer and find out why the payments are screwed up.  Its up to them to comply with the CS order.

its a state run program that garnishes the parents wages who is ordered to pay support.

I would say consider yourself lucky!  I wish I could do that, but when I tried that my ex decided that he was going to give my 50 dollars for 2 kids a month lol.

Well I did end up calling ORS and they told me that the company has until  5 business days after the due date month to send out the money.  So if by the 8th I haven't gotten payment for January thats when I call. blah.  So dumb and annoying.

It always takes a week after my ex gets paid for me to get a check. I thought that was how it works.
