My ex-husband is not working right now but on unemployment. He owes be about 20K in back support and has not paid since Feb. I rec’d a letter from NC child support telling me that they cannot take money from his unemployment why is that?
Also he is in Washington.
I saws this post online from a lawyer and wondered would I be able to do the same in NC?
This is an easy fix, thankfully - and it needs to go in two steps to avoid future problems with Mr. Deadbeat Dad.
Step 1: It looks like he’s not on SDU. File a petition to get him on SDU, they will automatically debit from his unemployment check and direct deposit it into your account.
Step 2: File a rule to show cause. This will get you a judgment from the court stating that he officially owes “x” dollars in back support, plus 9% annual interest. You can use the judgment to get additional withholding from his unemployment, put a lien on any property he has, clean out his bank account, take his tax return money - or if you’re feeling very vicious, suspend his license and have him thrown in jail.
