I worked tirelessly for months and months and months to get everything straightened out and finally get child support coming in from my ex-husband. It took daily calls to the attorney general's office, emails back and forth to his employer and more stress than is neccessary. And, right when I was about to throw in to towel and file for abandonment... I get a check. And, then I get another check. I got lulled into a false sense of security that this might become a regular thing since the employer was seemingly on board after being threatened by the attorney general's office. I really thought that all that time and stress had paid off, and even though I was getting less than half of what I was supposed to... it was something.
And now... nothing again. When I called the attorney general's office... they said that the whole process of months and months of waiting period in between each letter sent out to my ex-husband would have to start over from scratch. I just really wish we didn't NEED that money, but we do. I wish somehow the employer or even my idiot ex-husband would somehow understand the importance of receiving child support. They seem to think it's money I'm going to use to go on a tropical vacation or something, instead of buying groceries. I want to take a picture of my empty fridge and my bank account with $0.47 in it, and see if maybe then they get it. I just really, really don't want to start the whole process over again from scratch, but I don't see anything else I can do. :( ITS SO FRUSTRATING!
