My question involves workers compensation law for the state of: California.
I have a court order for child support for my daughter. She is 21 now. So I don't pay child support anymore. But I owe $45,000 in back arrears. I was injured on my job in 2003. And I am on workers' comp. before I got injured they were taking $700.00 a month out of my checks. Then I got evicted had my vehicle repossessed because after they took out money I had $350 left a month to live on. So I was granted a modification and lowered my payments to $294.00 a month. OK . Well I live in a different county from where the support order was filed. 4 hours one way 325 miles. They kept trying to suspend my license but since I have a Class A with all endorsements and that was my job I drove tow trucks for a living. then when they couldn't do that because that was my source of income they started serving me with contempt of court orders I was going up to that county at least 4 times a month for one reason or another they would postpone or something else. Then in 2003 I got injured on the job and suffered multiple injuries I have had 3 spine surgeries and 2 shoulder repair surgeries. Now they take the $294.00 out of my workers' comp check and that leaves me $1,000.00 a month and my rent alone is $900.00. I have been rated at 100% totally disabled. I am in the process of starting my social security disability. I filed for COAP and it was denied. Oh and for the past 10 years they take my taxes over $4,000 each time. I know I probaly need to get an attorney. But I can barely pay my rent. I can't make any more trips up to the county where the order was granted, because of my disability. so I never filed a petition to modify the arrears. I had to drop out of direct deposit because they would take out money without my permission all the time like $300-$400 at a time. without notifying me. then checks started to bounce and the bank fee's started to add up. So my question is the court is trying to put a lien on my workers' comp settlement and they probally will take my social security disability too. PLEASE PLEASE somebody tell me is there a way I can stop this from happening. my daughter is 20 now and He hasn't let me see her since she was 4 years old. and we were never married. He was very abusive to me and I had 2 boys from a previous marriage who at the time were 4 & 6 years old. He was sexually molesting my boys when I worked during the day. but the boys were so scared of him they never told me. One day he beat me up in front of my kids and told me to get out. when I tried to leave he put a gun to my head in front of the kids and said u take your boys but our daughter stays with me. that was the last time i seen her. police would not get involved at all. Is there a way I can tell them about my disability because I will not be able to live on what little money they will leave me. I need help so bad with this but don't know where to go. After 10 years my sons finally told me what he did to them. and I tried everything to file charges but the courts said the boys waited too long and now nothing could be done. they both take medication for depression and other mental problems from this. Is there anything I can do to have them stop taking all my money please advice. HELP
