What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Kansas
My ex-husband is in arrears with his child support payments by approximately $9800. He recently informed me that he had been approved for disability through Social Security. I had went through CSE and they had been aggressively trying to collect from him. He told me he is sick and is concerned that they would throw him in jail. He asked me since I would start receiving social security dependent payments for the children if I could cancel CSE. I did this.
I just recently learned that if I had not cancelled CSE I could have collected the child support that was in arrears from the back pay he would be receiving from his disability payments. I called CSE and asked if they could help collect the funds but I have to do a new application and during that time he would have already received the back pay. I understand that I made a mistake in cancelling CSE but I was wondering if there is another avenue that I can take to collect the arrears from his back pay in a timely manner?
