The father of my child is living with his girlfriend who had twins last year. Currently, she is receiving child support from him while he is residing with her.
Is this fraud?
The effects...when she filed for child support her wage assignment went to the employer. The father is in arrears on my child's case. Current support is based on 50/50 placement, the child does not and has not spent overnights or even 2% time with father for 4 years. I filed for full placement last week without a lawyer. I cannot afford a lawyer.
The effects...the other case, the girlfriend, gets paid FIRST. First, the current support for each case is disbursed. Her child support is based on sole custody/placement. He lives with her. He trumped the situation by having her file for child support so that the money can come back to their household. OR, due to a State interest, girlfriend receiving assistance at some point or currently, the State may have ordered her with "good cause" to file for child support.
I am ASSUMING she is filing for assistance with the state and that he is not on her application for assistance as a household member, therefore not counting his income when she qualifies for assistance.
I called the Court Commisioner, they don't care or take reports of concerns of fraud. I would have to mail a letter, with copies to father, and fear retaliation and effects on our child due to my actions.
I called the welfare system in my state. They have a fraud line where you leave a message. I left a message last week, no call back.
Now, I find out that they pay current support on both cases but can only withhold 50% of his net income. Where does this NOT constitute fraud?
My child is being denied financial support due to his and his girlfriend's actions. HELP!!! Open for suggestions!
I filed for change in placement to reflect the actual situation. In the meantime, I am minding my own business as to not cause undue friction. I am focused on MY child. But, I do feel as though I am being "messed with".
