What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Minnesota
I have been divorced since 1997. My ex husband has routinely NOT paid child support and currently owes me a whopping $85,000 in past due child support. He works part time at the Army reserves, so I might get $75.00 in 1 month.
We had a motion to show cause hearing on February 14, to determine if he was in contempt or not for failure to pay. During the hearing my ex husband and his attorney stated that my husband as re enlisted in the Army Reserve for another 6 years making him entitled to a 10,000 enlistment bonus. My ex stated he would "give" me the entire $10,000 in order to NOT be held in contempt.
The judge signed the order and it has been sent to the DOD. In reality what is the likelihood that I will really get the 10K. He is entitled to it, will the DOD just send it to the state who will send it to me.
Thanks for any help.
