child support court hearing Dude, you Fugly! 18 kids; Winston-Salem, North Carolina 19869 posts

how long does it fudgin' take to get a court hearing date to get child support started? i mean seriously! Brandon & I was legally divorced Sept. 5th 2012. We had a mutual agreement for child support ( my big big BIG mistake to chose from the first place ) he paid me nothing from Sept. until Feb. (finally paid me some when he got his taxes back. but hasnt given me anything for March or April) So in October I went ahead and called to the office to get a court hearing to start child support thru the court system. I've called my caseworker and other caseworkers, left voicemails after voicemails. & when I did get someone to pick up..they would say we still dont have a court date, call back in 15-30 days to see if anything has changed. That m'fer has no set priorities, other than his many girlfriends.



how long did it take you to get a court hearing date? then how long after the court hearing did he have to start paying? if he continues to not pay when will he go to jail?

Mine happened fairly quickly, didn't mean I got money quickly.



They gave him chances, threatened jail time, then he found a job and they court ordered it to be taken out of his check automatically, that all took over a year though.

It's really not the money issue, it's the, he's getting away with it part that pisses me off so badly. I just want him to take up his responsibilities. He thinks just because my finacee owns his own construction company and makes descent money, he shouldn't have to pay. But yet, he can go buy him a fairly new truck, get into a new condo, and buy all these new clothes/shoes..but can't even pay $300 a month for child support! I let him off easy..but he can't even show me gratitude for it.

They may make him do back pay to the time of divorce. And yeah I get what you are saying.

They will make him pay arrears from the time you filed.
