My question involves child support in the State of:Tennessee
Mother and Father divorceed in 1973
Father paid child support
Mother lied in 1997 and petitioned the court for a child support judgement, the Father is from out of town and did not show up for court. He was young and knew he had paid the support, so he ignored it. He received a letter advising him that he owed a child support judgment for 225,000 for 21,000 in back child support and the rest arrears.
He tried many times to get it reversed, but he could not find his receipts so it was denied.
The mother's attorney filed and was approved for a QDRO in California ( Father's employers corporate headquarters, he lives in louisianna and she lives in Tennessee ) by submitting the Tennessee child support judgment and his employer put a hold on his retirment account, by then the judgment had increased to 555,000 including additional arrears.
Father located his child support receipts that will prove that she lied, but the attorney told him that he will not be able to get the judgment reversed, because it has been too long. She is recommending that he give her the money.The mother has also placed a garnishment for 5,000 a month- they have been taking out.
Is there anyway to get this reversed. He had spoken with several lawyers and they all tell him it's been too long.
