Fighting a corrupt system

by Mr. B
(Mass)

Way back in 1978 we got divorced, we had two kids, I was in the military and stationed out of state, She was granted full custody, I was not allowed visitation, The military sent the $ 200.00 a month to her, Shw later went on welfare and had to claim that she was not getting paid the $200.00, I had to go to court to prove the military was sending her the checks, I twas decided that the checks would go to the clerk of the court and a $ 1.00 fee was attached ( back in those days they did not have interest (i mean penalties ) and all went well until I seperated from the service. I fell behind and in 1997 I tried to work out a new payment plan. The deputy county attorney went to the court and got a judgement against me in 1998.


He did not want me to repay a smaller amount, he wanted big money, I later learned that AZ started using the interest ( penalty ) system in 1995 and he made it retroactive all the way back to 1978. Paying $200.00 a month somehow added up to $ 27,993.74 and then the interest was $32,705.25 for a total of $ 60,698.99.......I almost died when I got the court papers in the mail.......WHAT THE F*** was going on! I used a calculator but could not figure out what kind of math formula they were using.

My lawyer was blown away as well. What was the interest rate? how did $200.00 add up to $ 27,993.74...I figured it out to $24,143.00....The arizona revised statue shows ten percent interest for a judgement from the court. That would be $2,400.00 or so but not $ 32,705.25....I have been trying to straighten this out with the courts and DCSE...the answer is always the same....DENIED !!!! I can never get an answer from a person, the phone prompts do not lead to a real person, letters go unanswered......I have been paying with wages and tax intercepts since 1983 and still owe just over $ 64,000.00 this will never get paid I will die owing all this money,,,even thought i have been paying they still took my passport, my drivers license for a short time and recently placed a lien on my bank account...when I complained they said they did not place the lien yet the money is missing, the bank gave it to them, they claim they don't have it, I believe it was stolen by an employee of DCSE.....I am filing a formal complaint with the state attorney general and going forward with a civil complaint and maybe a criminal complaint to get to the truth of this matter.

The DCSE operates outside the law and violates the constitution of the united states ( 14 amendement mostly ).....one more thing, the so called interest is really a penalty for not paying before the money is due, they start charging the interest before the payment is due then hold the money for at least two weeks before applying it to your account, some payments are held for six months while they attach interest....the DCSE is worse than the MOB !!!!!!

The time is now!

You story sounds very similar to mine, though my arrears arent as high as yours. There is no solution but to organize the millions who have been caught up in this disgustingly corrupt child support system, and file one of the largest civil and human right suits against the govt. There is no question as to the detriment its caused, we have the critical mass to do this, just let me know when!

disability people have no rights in the corrupt system

I went through years of court from my ex. He dragged me into court when I was pregnant,when my son was born,when my son was 3 months,when my son was 6 months,when my son was a year old,when my son was 1 1/2 years old .... until my son was 13 and then he made up lies that me have a nervous break down. I have not seen my son since. He lied about his income for years! I watched him live in a beautiful 3,000 sq. foot home with 5 vehicles etc. He made me pay almost 500.00 a month when I was only making 9.00 a hour! He was making over 100k and with his wife's income they were making almost 200k a year! I could never prove it because his Mom was his book keeper. His Mom died and he couldn't hide it any more. He was told that he had to pay me because his income was so much more than mine.(about 100,000 more!) So he closed the case. I was happy because I could support my other son from a previous relationship and not have to live in poverty any more. I never knew the case was never set to zero. 10 years later the creep that he is reopened the case. My son is now 20. I found out that I now owe 25,000 because of the interest. I am applying for a state disability hearing. I was in a head on collision that left me with neck, shoulder, mid back, lower back pain, I also have two bulging disc that at times get so swollen that I can hardly walk, I have arthritis in my lower back too that prevents me from walking at times, My hands are in pain and my arms go numb in the night. I am seeing a neurologist. I am now being threatend to pay this amount. They said that if I don't pay they will throw me in jail, take away my license etc. Wow! They would actually throw someone in jail that can't even work due to health issues, and has no income or assests. I am 100% depended on my husband. I live in fear that someone will put me in jail and the extreme pain I will feel when there without the proper support for my neck and back. I don't even let a doctor touch my spine because of the pain it causes. I feel helpless and feel like I am being bullied by the state of California. I tried calling to see if I can get it modified and was told no. I can't stop the interest.It makes me so angry that this is how they treat people with disabilities and that the creep was allowed to lie year after year about his income!! He even took it from me when I lost my job and was homeless living in hotels with my other son. He took it from my unemployment check with no concern for any one but his selfish self. He was making over a 100,000 a year when this happened! The system is so broken and it is so unfair. There are many suicides because of the system being unfair! I wrote my congress woman and I am going to write my senator. This has to stop! There is a petition on line to stop this. I really feel so helpless and it is causing me more pain because my muscles are so tight from worrying if I will go to jail for something I have no control over.

you are so right

You think yours is bad Try getting a judgement for a 34yr old girl that I did pay for back in 1973 and today I owe 148,340.00 and I pay 2023.00 Monthly when I should be retireing . The childsupport system in all states is corrupt. Dont come to TEXAS it is worse.
If I was you get a very aggressive Lawyer and if he is not get rid of him take it to the supreme court till it is taken care of . Keep all receipts for life and dont have any assets in your name or 401 K they will take it all. Good luck .
