Caught up with Child Support
SO is caught up with child support and more important finally has a caseworker after repeated calls. BM refused to respond to the summer visitation credits and they are defaulting to what SO submitted which is what they should do but after her delaying so long he has over paid by hundreds.
Since his checks are garnished by court order (meaning we can’t just stop paying or adjust it on our own) and it takes so long for the system to catch up on his side they can’t just refund it to him as it’s already been paid out. They really don’t have a good system of how to handle over payments for our state and without a caseworker everyone else dropped the ball we’re now in an odd place.
I’m concerned because the plan is to reduce what he pays till the over payment is corrected which is fine. But it will take 3 months to go through all of it and in the meantime BM is going to be a nightmare and I also see her trying everything she can to screw him over. It’s just going to take so long and I’m so afraid of someone going in and screwing with things. What the caseworker explained makes since and uses the systems they have already in place but it’s just not good. Basically she adjusted what he owes to the summer rate which he will pay each check. The other half will be reduced from the over payment. BM will still get a partial payment but she’s not going to like it. I see her calling the office to complain that it isn’t summer and her refusing to understand or whoever takes the call just believeing her without doing any extra digging.
We also got him removed from the tax withholding program and I see BM forgetting that the nice check she got at the start of each summer was because of him still having back due child support. Let me also add she's recently quit her job..........
