I believe the overwhelming response with this will be to avoid FRO like the plague.

They are notorious for being over worked, under funded and under managed.

If you have issues with cheques, perhaps an email money transfer? Or if she'll give you her account number you could arrange for the funds to be debited to her account each month.

There are a ton of options other than cheques. Personally I'd recommend you look through those, staying out of FRO is worth the small headache in the long run.

Paying support - What your options are

but do you really need FRO in your life?

why you do not do some email money transfer of even direct deposit ...
I believe there are number of options to take look into ... and FRO should be last on your list.

I do direct deposit right from my employer into my ex wife's bank account each month as soon as we had a signed agreement. No hassle for either of us, aside from the whole poverty thing.

No choice for me but to deal with FRO.. as already ex is shortpaying the amt ordered by the judge (last Sept).. Personally, I'm hoping FRO makes his life a living nightmare - (IF) he chooses not to pay the ordered amount of support. One thing is for sure: WE cannot and will not ever be able to arrange anything between ourselves..

you always can withdraw your case from FRO if both agree.
and if I am not mistaken FRO will not enforce Cost orders.

WorkingDad you are correct. The FRO does not enforce cost awards/orders.

if you are a decent Dad, and one who supports your children then you will never have an issue with FRO... they are there to enforce when need be. From what I can tell only those who feel as though they are hard done by and have issue supporting regularly are the ones who bash FRO. My new partner decided to deal with FRO because of the same issue.. also, his ex constantly was "losing" cheques and then demanding support earlier or out of the regular schedule. He opted for FRO because he does support regularly and there is no need for FRO to harass him. Fro can only take what is court enforced.. so if you are worried about your trying to get more out of you - she wont be able to through FRO.. If you are a supporter than FRO will be easy. good luck with your decision.

it is what it is... your response is exactly what I was talking about... too many fathers AND MOTHERS get their back up. As I mentioned before, if you pay regularly without issue then FRO is not a bad thing. Some people shouldnt be so quick with anger!
