I filed for child support, and 7 MONTHS later, we finally had the mediation. Coincidentally, my ex had been fired from his job only 2 weeks after I filed.
At the mediation, he told the commissioner, that he had a new job, which is what they used to figure out his monthly payments. Despite the fact that he had no written proof of this new job, “could not remember” the address, phone number or even the name of his boss, they still used it. He was orders to make a payment by the end of the month or he would be in contempt (our mediation was on the 20th.) He did not make a payment, so contempt charges were filed.
Fast forward 12 weeks later, no payment has been made. I find out that the child support enforcement office had filed a non compliance with his job because they have not garnished his wages. Fast forward another 2 weeks, the enforcement office finds out that he has never worked at the job which he told them he did. Not only that, the department of labor has reported to the enforcement office that he has not been employed by any company since he was fired from the job right after I filed for support (now almost a year later.)
