If you were law enforcement and a court officer once, then you should realize this was in the cards for you potetntially. Im not getting into how much
or if or when you shouldve, couldve or not.
You realize surely that the government waits so long...and your ex gripes about it... and here you are.
They do have the right to proceed in any and all ways to recoup the $$$ owed. Driving privledges, taxes, garnish all your weekly wages or
benefits...that last one was a stunner for me.
I had gotten my paycheck envelope and opened it to find a notice from my employer that they had received a COURT ORDER to garnish my wages.
Instead of my usual take home (way back when) of around $1100...it was $300.......and they kept taking it for 24 months. Devasting at 1st, I got thru
it, and understand I owed it, they waited and waited and waited for me to pay anything...even $20 a month...I wouldnt...so they just took it out
It was nearly $1600 a month leaving me with about $4-500. I still had car note, food, utilities, student loan, and house mortgage and insurances
They had every right to take any way they could think of to nail you for the $$$$.
Im sure you knew that eventually...they'd get it from you...and the drivers license is one good way. And I know trying to reason with them on your
behalf and of how much hardship this placed on you...but ...you arent the issue: child support is the issue.
They need it...youre supposed to pay it...and you knew it. Even if you had to collect bottles to get the kids something...anything.
Good luck to you
