My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Missouri
So a couple of days ago I received an email from payroll telling me that my check will be garnished for child support. Now, the reason this came a huge shock to me is because my daughter's father hasn't been in her life for almost 3 years now.... Matter a fact, if he walked up to her she wouldn't even know who he is. He' s a homeless, panhandling (I've seen this with my own eyes btw) paranoid schizophrenic (which is the reason I left him because he became a sloppy drunk and I begin to fear for all of our safety).
Anyway, I know you're probably saying..well you had to have gotten notices of this but honestly the place where my mail goes I never really checked it often because all the mail that had been coming for me was just spam mail. Smh, regardless I should've.. no excuse right?
Either way I would like to know how I can go about fighting this and if I have a chance to have my request granted.
PS . . He tried this before when we first broke up and I caught it in time, fought it and got his claim thrown out. But obviously we're waaaaay past where I was.
