Ordered to Show Cause in a court that no longer has jurisdiction
What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Texas and Indiana
Ok.. I am going to keep this short.
I live in Texas.. my ex lives in Indiana.
Early last year (2009) I filed to modify child support. After much wrangling.. my ex moved to have the jurisdiction of the case moved to Indiana. The motion was granted as of January 2010, and the case (both child supprt and custody) was moved to Indiana.
Today (June 7th, 2010).. I received a letter for the Attorney General of Texas stating that I need to show cause for my arrearage of child support int the court that no longer has jurisdiction - according to their own documents.
It also doesn't help that the judge in thsi court transferred it to another court in the same building.
As far as my knowledge goes... the court that I am to appear to no longer has jurisdiction... so therefore no cause in this case.
The OAG sent me a report of my payments... which doesn't include ANY payments that I have sent, nor the reception of my tax returns. I have receipts of my payments, and the record from the IRS that shows over $10K of tax returns that my ex has received.
Am I still behind? Yes. But what I find ironic is that this court is the court that signed off on the transfer of jurisdiction, but yet they are ordering me to show cause in their court that they say no longer has any say.
I am also not as far behind as what they are saying that I am.
I never quit... I never waver...and I will prevail.
