DH & I got a letter from his "Pen Pal"
His Pen Pal so to speak, is DCSE, Division of Child Support Enforcement.
WHY? Because he's in arrears. Why is he in arrears? Because he was JOBLESS for a couple weeks. Being jobless means, guess what? NO PAY...no pay means...child support is going to be delayed until a new job is secured. Then, when a new job is secured, the pay is NOT automatically going to appear in a checking account. Which means, it takes at least 2-4 weeks before said payday gets credited, because you gotta WORK before you get PAID.
Funny how that works. Now BM is not letting hubby talk to their son on the phone as a "punishment" because he's behind on his child support.
What is rotten is that if we WERE to send in the amount he's in arrears, guess what? It doesn't go towards arrears, it goes towards the current support, so it's gonna be AWHILE before he gets out of arrears. It's like a never ending cycle.
On the UPSIDE, there are ONLY 44 days left of Spousal Maintenance for Money-Me. Less than a month and a half. YEY! I can't wait for December 1st.
