Child Support

I owe back child support, however, I pay $160 a month towards it and $800 a month for current support. I have not not been even a day late for the last year. I have even paid more then the $160 some months towards the arears. But no matter, it still shows as delinquent, is there anything I can do?

Thanks to my ex, I'm about to have a child support judgme...

[ Edited ]
Thanks to my ex, I'm about to have a child support judgment put on my credit report too. I'm sure I'm about to have my FICO nuked right back to the Stone Age.

Which really, REALLY makes me mad as heck, because, amazingly enough, two of my three FICOs were actually improved over their levels six months ago...one by almost 80 points! Imagine that...I saw that, almost had a coronary from astonishment.

Then I opened my mailbox and in it was a letter from the county agency saying they were going to enter the judgment on my credit report with all three agencies. In my case, I don't actually owe any back child support, but it doesn't matter...once a judgment hits my FICO, it's toast.

I hope these county child support people die of bone cancer in a place where painkillers are inaccessible...

Re: Child Support

I had 5 judgements entered for back child support from 1998 to 2000. I was making payments and my tax returns were taken until 2005 when the last $375 was paid. the judgements were due to fall off over the past 2 years with the last one coming off in January of 2007. Now all five judgements are showing as "PAID TAX LIENS" and won't come off until 2012. Anything I can do about this???

Re: Child Support

I had this issue happen years ago. Hopefully you have proof that you have been paying the child support via check stubs and have not been paying in cash. I got hit for two years of back child support when it was supposed to be one year back child support.
 
Your best bet is to get a good Child Support Attorney and do NOT work with the Attorney General's office. They lost my DNA testing and other paper work and if you don't have copies for all that stuff too bad.
 
I eventually took full custody of my son and now I don't have to pay child support, but it does cost more to raise to raise a child, especially as a single parent.
 
I hope this helps!
 
Good luck.

Re: Child Support

The whole child support system as it exists in America is a socialist redistribution of the wealth scheme. It's also blatantly discriminatory toward men, and in violation of both the Constitution and international treaties to which the United States is a signatory.

I've always thought men in America who pay child support should file a class-action lawsuit charging sex discrimination, and also file a case with the United Nations Human Rights Commission (as gender discrimination is banned by international treaty). Not that the jackbooted thugs now running the American Empire would pay attention to anything the U.N. says, but to be censured like that would be a major embarrassment for America.

How is it discrimination? Women have to pay child support too.




Sure they do, in theory. In practice, it's a rarity. Trying to get custody of a child as a man is like trying to vote as a minority in the Old South: yeah, technically you had the right, but just try and register and cast a ballot and see how far you'd get.

Child support is a male tax. It's no different from the Taliban, only in reverse. It's gender discrimination, and it has no place in a democratic society. It violates the equal protection clause of the Constitution.

LOL. I think you're going a bit overboard there. Do a search of your states domestic relations child support liens. You'll see it's not so rare anymore. Regardless, why wouldn't a man want to provide financial support for his children? I'm a guy btw who is a custodial parent receiving child support garnished from the mothers income.




Well then, you must have friends in high places. Congratulations.

I have no problem providing support for my child. I do have a problem with supporting my ex's twelve hour a day video game habit (she is unemployed by choice), as well as with Soviet-style government agencies putting judgments on my credit report.

If I wanted to live under a soviet system, I'd move to Cuba--at least I'd get free health care.

In order for the tax returns to be seized there must be a judgement you have two things on your report.  On is a judgement, the other is a satified lien as a result of those judgements, both are indedendant of each other.  It just goes to speak of the lenghts that were gone to to collect the arrears support.  Tax liens stay on the report for 10 years just like BKs.  Its kinda like a creditor reporting you 180 days past due, then it goes to collections.  They are two very different things and both are valid entries
