The Texas OAG's Fee's!
by Stepmother of 3
I have a question for both Custodial an Non Custodial Parents when you filed your child support did the OAG ever mention their fee's for collecting the Child support? If they did, would you let me know when it was mentioned. If you are in the same boat as we are and the fee's were never talked about then listen up because you are going to be shocked when I tell you that both the CP an the NCP are getting screwed.
First to the CP have you ever noticed that one week you child support check is diffent from the next week. Then for a month it stays the same every week? The reason I ask is because my Husband and I got online to reveiw his payment history to his ex for his oldest son and the grandparents of his yongest two and were shocked at what we found. From January of 2010 to June 2010 4 out of the 6 months the OAG shorted the mother an grand parents of the children. Even when the same amount is taken every week from my husbands check. When we added it up their was $750 not accounted for, now thats just for six months if this keeps going by the end of the year the OAG will have shorted them in total $1500, for what we are guessing is the OAG fee's for collecting the money. So I urge you CP to get a copy of you payments from the OAG and add each month up to see if they are shorting you!
Now to the NCP I urge you to get a copy of your payment record from the OAG as well and add each month up, also get a copy from you employer showing what they have sent the OAG your going to relize that they may be doing the same to you! Also for the months that they short you they tack that on to the back child support.
People you have a court order for x amount of dollers each month and it pisses me off when the OAG doesn't due their part and screws both sides each month. So I urge you to look at your payments and make sure you are receiving the correct amount each month.
