 I have 2 beautiful girls from my first relationship.  I have court ordered child support.  he told me he was not giving me one red cent, that i had a good paying job and i could support the kids.    anyhow,  he somehow convinced the system he's disabled and gets a disability check each month.  then shacked up w/ a high school drop out and reproduced again.  i know they get all sorts of benefits.  i have never received any child support.  someone mentioned that it could be taken out of his disability check, up to half his check could be garnished.  is that true??

I believe they can.  File for child support and see.

Was it done through child support enforcement?  I believe they'll request for him to come in and he'll bring paperwork proving his income.  Then they'll figure out the numbers and you'll both sign to agree to them.  

I *think* that's how it works.

If you have a lawyer, I really have no clue.  I think they'll still need to verify his income before coming up with a number for him to pay.

Yes, and as far as amount goes it's based on multiple factors.  What state are you in?  If you go to the states/courts web site you can usually download a worksheet that can help you figure it out.  For example here's for WA: https://fortress.wa.gov/dshs/csips/ssgen/ 

And he can't just decide not to pay if there's a court order invovled.  Failing to do so can even lead to jail time for contempt of court.

It depends on your state, as well as your city. Call child support enforcement. I know my dad was on SSI when I was little and they took some of that money and gave it to my mom for child support. But that was years and years ago. Doesn't hurt to call. Worst thing that could happen is they say no. Best case, they say yes, and you get money for your children.

My ex is on disability.

You can take the court order and go to the social security office and apply for your children to receive an ssi check, they will issue a check right to you.

Unfortunately my ex didn't work enough for my DS to quality, so I get a whole $25 + a whole $10 towards the back support out of his check.

My ex is a loser and never worked or paid support unless he was on work release from jail, untill he got on ssi, where the court took it right out of his check.
He's supposedly blind but rides a motorcycle.
