Here I am again. My question this time is how long can FOC drag their feet?? I have been to two hearings on the amount of child support arrearages my ex-husband owes me plus his portion of medical, transportation, and education expenses. Each time I have prepared an itemized list with receipts attached, and of course each time I have to retain my lawyer for the proceedings.
My ex (who resides in some unknown state which changes each time) is there via speakerphone. The first time the FOC said they didn't think there was enough information and for each party to get together with attorneys and work out the amount owed. Well if we had been able to do this we wouldn't have been there in the first place.
The second time, they determined an amount of chid support arrearages but scheduled YET ANOTHER hearing on the remaining items, again, I had the receipts and showed them to them for the remainder.
They wouldn't recommend to the courts that my ex be foundin contempt, even though he admitted he had refused to make a payment since 1/2005. and they did not award me any attorney fees for all this. And then to top it all off I was yelled at(yes raised unprofessional voice) by a person in the FOC because they didn't know how they were going to make my ex-husband pay the money and they didn't know where he was living or working or anything.
My son and I are the victims here yet being treated like crap. AND I have to pay out exorbitant fees to get back what my ex was supposed to have paid. This is not the first, Or the last i'm sure, time that I have had to take him in on chidl support.
So my questions are why is FOC dragging their feet on this?? HOw long can they drag it out? Why won't they find him in contempt or make him responsible for a portion of the legal fees I have to put out because HE refuses to pay?
