I recently learned my husband, a Florida resident, had a Florida judgment in 1985 awarding $27,000 to the Ocean County Social Services, NJ, in back payments for welfare payments to his ex-wife and two small children. I checked and this award is now worth $68,000.
Ocean County is "not interested" in pursuing this. Can you believe that? My husband makes more than $50,000 a year and we have no bills so he can easily afford to pay but the government can't be bothered.
