    Default Frozen Bank Account Over Child Support

    PLEASE help!My partner and i have been together for 9 years,we have a joint bank account together and they(The New York Child Support Unit)froze this account.Can they do this?his children are 23 through 29 there are 6 kids here,in Sept.of2000 he paid off all arrears and he was up to date as of 2001 none of the children lived with there mother the last three lived with us.she said she was going to sign them off and never did.She also continued to collect food stamps and other welfare benifits for children that she did not have.we tried to explain this to the child support unit and they did not care and instead of signing the children off of child support she up and moved to Florida.BY The way his ex had remarried 15 years ago and she never reported that so the spousel support never stoped either.Do we have to pay because she committed welfare fraud they are going after the wrong person? Can they freeze this account even with my name on it?p.s. we are not married. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!Again Please Help!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank-You!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yes, they can freeze the account if your name is on it.
    As for being up to date on CS, only you can prove it to the CS office.
    If she never "signed them off"( whatever that means ), then he still had to pay. It would be up to your partner to prove that he's paid every dime.
    If they are in college, odds are, he still needs to pay child support.

    No. It was HIS responsibility.

    You're going to have to go back to court, and file a modification to emancipate the kids. And possibly, have the arrears wiped clean, as mom seems to have committed fraud ( to some extent )

    Your bf should have done this when they were 18. Unless he wants to continue paying support for his adult children he needs to file modification.

    Call the New York Bar Association and they will refer you to someone.
