What's the point of the performance bond??
So, here we are in March and guess who is already behind in her child support? Yep - Medusa!!!
I asked the disbursement unit about it and this is basically the answer: she puts up the bond and we hold it (interest bearing, so she gets to make money for being a f*cking slacker). Each month, if she doesn't pay, we will then disburse the monthly amount.
So, they hold her money. They then give her a chance to actually pay it, and of course, they give her the whole freaking month to make the payment and then they do a look back in the second week of the next month to see if it was actually paid. If it was, they just hang on the money. If it wasn't, then they go ahead and send the monthly amount to us. WHAT?? I mean, come on, we KNOW she isn't going to pay, and why would she, when they are hanging on to the amount she is supposed to pay? What kind of sense does that make?
Oh, and one of the requirements of the order following the show cause hearing was the she remain current. Well, she's not - she is currently on the hook for both February and March, so no, she isn't current.
How stupid is this system? I guess I can take some comfort in knowing that eventually the money does come, but geeeeez, talk about a dumb way to handle all of this.
And, you just KNOW that if this was a dude, he would likely not get all these breaks. Six more months of this crap, and then I will be done with the disbursement unit forever - FREEEEEEEEEEDOMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!
