Look, i know there are deadbeat dads out there, and i am proud to say i am not one of them. I take care and maintain what i create. I believe that is
what a MAN is about. Take care of what you create.
Anyways. Long story short, I own a landscape company and have lost 23000 in income from 2011 to 2012. What a hardcore adjustment by the
way-financially. I paid 360 a month, it went to review and they wouldnt use my tax info, instead an average of what a contractor in my arena should
make on average. It went to 530 a month and i quickly went into arrears, so they added 50 to payment now 580 to get arrears caught up. Well once it
went to arrears they gave me a court date of the 28th of each month until caught up. If it was paid by court date, it continued to the next month,all
In January i paid a check for 250 on 22nd and on 23rd i sent check for 330.Well friday the 25th rolls around and my case worker before leaving for
home ,looked on support web-site and they hadnt cleared. So Mondays court date was on. I go to court, and judge TOLD ME I WAS IN CONTEMPT. Couldnt
believe it. I told judge those checks are at central office and if they would look they would more than likely see. If not they will clear tonight by
the latest. DA told judge there was no way they would clear by the even the 31st. I was found in contempt and they slapped me with an electronic
monitoring device that i am charged 10 dollars a day for, for 60 days, pay 135 each friday for 60 days until purged. I called bank and the checks
cleared while i was in court on 28th but because of post date on check they show as clearing, one on 24th, one on 25th.I called my case worker and she
stated" if you think i have time to look on that website for 50 cases i have on monday then you are sadly mistaken. I said no just the people whos
freedom is in the balance.
Now for 750 dollars i have hired a lawyer for 2 hours of his time who said quote. I have a fuzzy feeling inside the judge will set aside this
contempt. SET ASIDE? That means i wasnt wrongly arrested all monies still due and it isnt on my record. WERE NOT MY CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS ABUSED. Can
i do anything. If nothing legally, am i allowed to write a letter to newspaper at least and drag these people who have harmed me through the coals
like they are trying to do to me. So set aside court date was set for 18th this monday. Lawyers secretary calls me and said family courts have
"decided" to be closed for week of presidents day and to wear anklet another week. WHAT?
I live with the fear of them coming to get me for no reason, just to keep me in their corrupt system and suck more out of me. What can i do?? Why
dont i have any rights. Why cant they strike contempt, instead of "set aside". set aside sounds like they are waiting in the shadows for me like they
know ill be back or something.
It is probably important to note that i told slob case worker,DA and unhonorable judge my monetary situation, AND that my invoices go out on 15th
every month and i dont even start getting invoice payments back until 20-21st, leaving me a 6-7 day window to get there payment.
I would so appreciate some worthy advice on this matter.
I was also told i needed to address judge as the honorable so and so. I had no idea at the time if he was honorable or not- (now i know)so i was
calling him SIR. Isnt that enough. I am a baptist and in my mind there is only ONE HONORABLE JUDGE, and he isnt opressing, and raping the already
