Anyone else been illegally taken advantage of by domestic relations?
SO got a lawyer a few weeks ago to file for 50/50 custody of his two daughters (2 different BMs). Before the lawyer filed for custody, she reviewed his child support cases. Turns out domestics had been taking hundreds of dollars from him illegally every month! When BM#2 took him back for modification a little over a year ago, they said they could only backdate his support to when BM filed for modification, which was a month prior to the meeting. Well, the caseworker ended up backdating it an entire 7 extra months!
SO finally got a letter from domestics today stating that all his back support is gone now (should have been gone MONTHS ago even though just last month he still "owed" $600something on BM#2's case...) and that BM#2's support was lowered $250 a month because of it. He got back over $2000 that they had taken from him illegally and this never would have been discovered if his lawyer didn't do extra research. Anyone else been screwed over like this before?
