What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? CA
Hi, I am in the process of trying to settle a 22,000.00 debt with CS. I have always made my payments on time since I joined the military and was told I owed arrears to the tune of 18k, I finaly had the arrears down to 6k from the original 18k by paying suport of 427 plus 100 toward arrears 527 a month. After the service I missed 6 months of payments in 2006 while searching for a new position. I got a new Job and started making payemnts again. Now in 2011 they say I owe 22k again. I found out through CS that the money is not owed to the state but to the costodial parent and the majority of the owed ammount is intrest thats been building up at 10% all this time..
I have always been on ok terms with the costodial parent and good terms with the children. So I called the costodial parent after getting a leter saying CS is gona do horrible things to me because of the arrears, She said she is willing to close the DA file and forgive the arrears if the children are willing to agree, other wise they gona stick it to me... so she put it... I dont see how this is bennifiting anyone besides CS and thier operating budget. It drives the None Costodial Parents credit down so they cant get a loan or even co-sign for thier children on big ticket items like a car or student loan for college.. This should be illegal for CS to control arrears and take your belongings and license's away for money owed to the cosodial parent and not owed to the state......
Is there anything I can do to have this lowered or removed in a legal maner if the costodial wont relieve me of the debt?
