Signs of FRUSTRATION!

(Cass County Nebraska USA)
I live in Nebraska and my X boyfriend owes $16,552.86 in child support over the past 4 years on two children. A week ago Friday (on 11-4-2011) I was trying to obtain answers from Child Support Enforcement because we had court the following Monday. They were preseuing a show cause contempt on my X finally, since he had gotten $3,000 behind after sitting out a 30 day purge. Anyways I had been put on hold for 45min., lost in a hole bunch of transfers, hung up on "by accident", ignored with hopes I would go away, BUT I was bound and determined to get an answer. SOO, I went to the gurage and started making signs. They stated "Cass County NEEDS to adopt Douglas County Child Support Laws, Non-payment of Child Support SHOULD be considered the same as NEGLECT, Harsher Child Support laws = more payments." Then I took it a step further and posted "Mr. D. Good owes over $16,000 in support to our kids, Trinity Good owes (changeable amount sign) in child support."
I hopes that maybe just maybe the Attorney in Cass County that 'enforces child support' would get a clue and answer me. Well dispite my 1st Ammendment right I had to take down the two signs with my X's name on them because someone brought it to my attention it may violate the parenting plan. So I took those two down. Eventhough I did my X filed a hurassment order asking the court to stop me from posting sings in my yard on this matter period.
Well Monday we go in front of the Judge to address the issue, and hopefully my personal and political views will be able to stay posted. In the mean time my X still gets his visitation and prances around like he just robbed a bank cause his last payment was $1.00 in April this year. I am SURE F'n glad my tax dollars are paying for nothing!
