My question involves child support in the State of: California and Minnesota.
Marriage and Divorce occurred in California. Wife moved to Mn after having wage order assigned and visitation set up through the California court.
She had California Css administer the order. She then opened up another support case in Mn seeking support. So support would see four different handoffs by the time it hit her. Anyway the Min css became the initiating state and california the responding state. During about 3 yrs I fell inconsistant with regular payments causing tax intercept initiated by MN. MN never told California of the Intercept and I the paperwork I was working off was just my pay stubbs showing money going, never a monthly accoounting that you might get from any other bill. Anyway when I went to pay lump sum to clear arrearage with California I asked for an accounting and realized that nothing in Mn was reflected. The total that Mn has intercepted over the years was $3000. At my sons 17 birthday he moved to california and lived with me until his 18 birthday. I kept regular support payments until his 18 birthday when I was informed that my xwife told Mn that he was still in Highschool and would be there until June. She lied about where and who he was with and He was already finished with High School, he was attending night school.
She since has moved back to California and I have won the initial audit which provides me with a $5000 overpayment. I was told by my caseworker to make 1/2 of my support obligation until the overpayment is 0. Even though my xwife lives in Californa now Mn still claims monthly support in the full amount and they dont recognize the overage until the child nears the end of support,(so like 17 1/2) i would stop support. I send support to California and they refund it to me stating that the case is on hold for audit and removal. I try to talk to the case worker but my case is too complicated for them and I can see them make stuff up just to get me out the door. Stuff like your case was closed by the mother, we no longer enforce your order.l
I believe the mother revoked her case in an attempt to sidestep california'[s fair approach to repayment and continue with Mn enforcement.
I have no contact information, no forwarding account processing information to send support. I send support from automatic bill pay to california and they send it back.
1. Who governs my support order, disbersement and accountability if both parents live in california and the order originated there?
2. What can I do to eliminate Mn from administrative involvement in my case, they again have intercepted my federal taxes this year despite arrears.
3. Since my support is being mailed and I have been getting refunds, I know that when all is final there will be arrearages. Is that arrearage going to have interest attached to it?
Thank you so much for your time and comments..
