Listen folks. I am not a deadbeat dad that hides and runs from my responsibilities. I am a retired deputy sheriff, narcotics detective, court officer.
I've spent about 18 years serving you, the public, in different aspects of my employment. I was forced to seek other employment due to a serious
heart condition in 2004.
I was able to immediately find work as a sleezy (not really) car salesman. I most recently took a job with a home mortgage company. After attending
the licensing classes, passing exams and spending countless hours learning the job, I was then informed by The State of Ohio was unable to license me
due to derogatory credit. Derogatory credit!
Yep, you guessed it! My child support order affects my credit negatively, therefor, I cannot be licensed! So I have been searching for employment
since July. I have lost my house, and am now living with a girlfriend. To pay my way, I do as much around the house that can possibly be done. All the
while still putting in applications and not getting any calls. What's the issue?
Well after applying for another job, I visited the motor vehicles website to get some information for the job I am applying for. LICENSE SUSPENDED!
Wow! What a shock! The whole reason I have not received any calls for employment, which is neccessary for survival, child support, and to just feel
like a man again, is I have no valid license.
I called Child Support today and was informed that I now have a court date for December 12th and must pay nearly $4000 in full before having my
license re-instated! If unable to pay the full amount, without a license, without employment, I could face felony charges and time in prison. That's
right, prison! Keep in mind, my son is 17 and daughter is 10. This is the first time i've had trouble finding employment, because they (child
support) took my license. To make things worse, the b**ch on the other line, snickered at me! If only I could climb through the phone, I would earn
that trip to prison!
