I think BM has come unhinged
To be fair, she's never been tightly hinged to begin with. Per my last blog, she is claiming that she was not paid CS for April. Well, DH's check has been garnished every two weeks and the website clearly says Arrears: 0.00.
When they got the new order, BM took it down to Child Support Enforcement (allegedly), and they (allegedly) told her that this new order, which is a pay direct order, would nullify the old order, so DH would have to pay her directly. They would (allegedly) stop taking money out of his check at the end of March. Well, they are still taking money out, and I could see last week that they took the amount of BM's support out of the credit he had, on 4/1. Where in the world is BM's support? DH has still not received any notice that they will no longer be garnishing his wages, though he did get a refund for the negative arrears he had.
She wants DH to pay her now. DH told her that the money was still coming out of his check, and he hasn't been told to pay her directly. He did pay her, directly, the additional amount that was ordered at the last court date.
No problem, she said, I will just go down to Family Court Monday and file a petition for non-payment. They can sort it out.
She's going to file a petition after 2 weeks of alleged non-payment? When it clearly says in his account that his check has been garnished and he has no arrears? Has she lost her mind?
I notice she did not say she'd have her attorney file, because he would ask her if she had called Child Support Enforcement yet? Because he's sane. I don't know if she's hoping DH will panic and pay her? Because it seems like this will not go in her favor. Either CSE paid her or they owe her, but DH has paid his April support.
DH has not experienced this level of harassment from her since well before SS was alienated,4 years ago, when she was on him about being one minute late for drop-offs etc. So, back to court he will go, unless somehow "magically" the April Child Support appears when BM comes to her senses. If she has any sense left.
