My question involves child support in the State of: New Jersey. My daughters case was closed. My ex husband owes over $27,000.00 in back support. He will be getting money from the sale of a house. Can I get a lawyer to make New Jersey reopen the case. He lives in Virginia. Virginia says that New Jersey closed the case because of no activity. I do get small amount from his social security since he stopped working. Does that mean that the case is open and just floating in outerspace. Getting through to speak to someone in New Jersey is crazy.
