Nightmare Oags Office
All of you custodial parents that feel that the OAGs office is unfair need to come to Houston, for truly here will the scales be tipped disproportionately in your favor. The day my ex and I seperated I went down to the OAGs office and setup Child Support, we literally left from the same house in two different cars. Now keep in mind they didnt have to track me down or anything I thought i was doing the right thing and went on my own, BIG BIG mistake! All Going down there did was cause my divorce to be delayed, I agreed to 1000.00 a month which is more than they asked for because i wanted my daughter taken care of, and i was still treated like an ogre. after I fanally got my ex to sign the divorce papers i went to family law center to finalize the divorce and was told that i had to go BACK to the OAGs office and have them sign off, so I said "ok no problem, i'll go back to the OAGs office and come back down here in the morning" well I go to the OAGs office and the nice competent clerk(sarcasm inserted here) informed me that they couldnt sign off on my divorce because I was in arrears $500.00. WTF???? I hadnt missed a payment!!!! Of course they were not hearing that and so in order to get my divorce i had to wire $500.00 to the office in the hope of getting them to sign off the next day. So back down there I go the next day, only to hear from a new clerk that i was NEVER in arrears, not at any point, so when i asked about my refund of course what i got was "we dont give refunds in this office, just dont send her any money next payday" wtf???? Do you people realize that the money is taken out of my check and i just cant NOT send it? So after i was told that the clerk from yesterday was simply incompetent and with a shoulder shrug and a "thats life" the atty at the OAGs office accused me of fraud by saying i was trying to have her sign off on a copy of my decree, as i protested that it was the original i was accused of being belligerant, she then licked her finger to see if the ink would smudge which it did indicating that it was NOT a copy, she then created another reason not to sign the decree so that i couldnt get my divorce. I ended up having to hire another atty to finally get it done, the moral once you seperate let the divorce court determine child support, the OAGs office is too incompetent to do the job in a fair way.
