Father In WA. State Fighting to get rights back
First off I will say Im father currently paying off a debt to child support system My child is a adult now, I have been treated like a deadbeat dad with this system rather current or not on support obligation, I lost my career several years ago after a on the job accident and Have yet to receive settlement on, Over the last 10 years I fell behind on my obligation on several occasions, Not once by Ignoring or running from my obligation, The system in place makes it almost impossible to pull yourself up once you get behind. They have several laws and rules at there disposal to inflict on the non custodial Parent paying child support. I was a commercial truck driver and have been trying to go back to work as a driver and with the drivers license suspensions child support has issued in past years stay on record forever. I am trying to change this law and need your help R.C.W 46.52.130 Needs to be changed. In My case I due owe a arrears and have tried everything i could to be in compliance They have liens on my property Liens on my vehicle have taken passport, occupational license, fish and hunt, suspended drivers license garnished etc, My Point is its fine to collect the support But when you put someone out of work and keep them from working by removing there license to do so is unfair and unlawful, They can keep License suspension on your driving record for the rest of your life No statue of limitations, In other words if you were to be arrested for drunk driving and they suspend your license your record would be better than someone that was suspended for getting behind In child support, Its time to Modify some of these laws If you can,t work you can,t pay They need to come up with a way to allow parents paying support to still work. Please call your local representatives and ask to help change these laws and take some of our rights back, I believe Most people want to do the right thing and many fall on bad times. No one should be forced to stay there and No one should be punished for being poor.
