I live in Pa and am CP of my 3yr old son. His father and I were never married but lived together for 3yrs. I filed for custody and child support in October 2001, and in December 2001 he was ordered to pay a huge 30% of my sons expenses.
Pa requires automatic payment through payroll deduction, and I was told that once this started (4-6 weeks) that I would also recieve additional payment to apply to the $1400 he owes in arrears.
I started recieving that additional $$ last week in a sum of $4.24 per week. At this rate it will take him 330 weeks or over 6yrs to pay this. How is the $$ calculated? It is 4%of my weekly total, does this sound right?
I have tried calling the domestic relations department of deleware county, but they are no help--the rudest group of people I have actually ever encountered.
I know I should be happy that I am actually getting money every week(even if it is not enough), but just need to know if I should be getting the arrears quicker.
