My ex-husband owes nearly $7,000 to my eldest children. He has not filed a tax refund for years, and when garnishes have been set up in the past, he has quit his job before it went through.
When he has been on unemployment, he was paying a mere $30 a month for two children. They did not take arrears out, either. I have contacted the child support agency and they have now started cross checking bank account details, taxes etc. However, they told me that it's not likely anything will turn up. They encouraged me to keep an eye out on the social networking sites as people tend to let their guards down.
What hurts the most is that he doesn't seem to care. All I want is help to support the children we had together, so that they can enjoy activities, etc. that other kids do when they have both parents supporting them.
The only other means is to pay nearly half what he owes them to a private investigator and try and catch him out as to where he gets his income. That is totally out of the question to me as I don't have that kind of money lying around. I would do it myself, but I live in a different state.
