My youngest child is 26 years old and I owe $9000 in back child support. I haven't heard a word about it for 8 years and now I've received a letter from Maximus, a collection center acting on behalf of the county. My question is twofold:
First, is there a statute of limitations to pursue collection? I live in the state of Ohio, in Lucas County.
Second, I was diagnosed with leukemia in 1993 and I've been on Social Security Disability since 1994. I receive $515/month and it's my only source of income. Can my check be attached and if so, what percentage can they take? I have no property or bank accounts and I don't even have a driver's license. What steps can be taken to collect this past-due support? Can I be put in jail?
Thank you for your time.
