Default CS arrears

If someone owes a year + of back child support, and their current regular monthly child support payment (garnishment FRO) is 50% of their pay cheque, what recourse is available for the support owing? I'm assuming no recourse, it is what it is...

If FRO is already garnishing the maximum from their pay they cant take more.

If there is an outstanding arrears order filed with FRO, the payor would have to pay it down and it may take longer than cs is owing.

If there is no order and FRO is only garnishing the cs payments then they cant continue to recover the amount of arrears.

He has four children to pay for. Three from his ex and one from me. I'm wondering if both of us are receiving less child support monthly, due to the garnishment. I'm scared my child support order has affected her. I'm almost wondering if she's a year behind as well but don't want to rock the boat and contact her.

They probably garnish the full amount of his wages and split the amount between the two orders. They wont tell you how much that is because of privacy issues.

You cant get anymore than what they take because of the rules on garnishment. You will both just have to be patient and take what they can get. They would also seize his tax returns or any other government payments he receives.

She and her CS are none of your business and you have no business contacting her about it. If FRO is doing their job what sort of recourse are you looking for??

People are so snappy on here. It's called manners and etiquette. I'm HOPING my child support arrears is not causing her a problem. I have one child to raise, she has three. I was speaking aloud. Not actually going to investigate her. People really need to think.

I can see you reported my post to the moderator (me).

You may not like it, but its the reality. Her CS is none of your business and is between them. Nothing to do with you or your kids. If you really have an issue with it and are concerned he doesn't have enough money for his other kids that you accepted he had when the two of yoi got together, then maybe you should offer to reduce or end the CS you receive and make a new agreement. That's the extent of what your involvement should be, if anything. If you aren't willing to do that then leave her and her kids alone and mind your own business.
