I recently went to court for child support…FINALLY. I filed in October, 2007 and the case was JUST heard a couple weeks ago. My first question is how long does it take for the judge to issue her ruling? The longer it takes, the more debt I’m accumulating because my ex refuses to pay ANYTHING.
Also, what is the process for filing for back child support? My attorney keeps saying that she’ll file, but it’s taking entirely too long. Something has to give! I’ve been paying ALL daycare expenses for my daughter since September, 2007 with only periodic contributions from my ex. Every now & then he’ll send a check for whatever amount he deems is fit, and then I’ll go for MONTHS without anything. This is draining my budget. Will it take just as long to get back child support as it did to have child support ruled on? And I’m STILL waiting for that ruling.
