Child Support Strikes Again!!!
The one good thing I can say about the child support system is they are consistent. Here I stand once more waiting for checks that are over three weeks late. Of course it isn't their fault, they process them as soon as they come in... no way could the mistake be on their end. The check must have gotten lost in the mail (we discussed the unlikeliness of this in the past), the company is not mailing them (aside from the fact that the law says they have 10 to mail a check and I am wayyyyyy over 10 days late)... nope it can't be their problem.
Now the adventure is going to get better as the ex has been laid off and we have to go through not one but TWO govt bureaucracies... omg I will never see my money again!! I am wondering if I should get my boots back out and do some stomping???
I know that I am not the only one this has been happening to and I was honestly hoping that it was just the folks here in Illinois that are suffering from this but I spoke with a friend this morning and he was telling me about the trials of Michigan Child Support... Oh wow!! it is happening everywhere.. what he was telling me was almost identical to what is happening to me!!
Maybe a letter to the president is in order.. or better yet his wife!! They seem to care about families or they claim to let's see what happens if I do. Of course the last time I wrote a letter to the president, about child support (yes I did) it was Clinton and I didn't even get the common courtesy of a form letter response. I did get one from then Governor Edgar's office as well as some pretty heavy assistance..
Guess I do need to kick some ass.. Not just for me, mothers it seems need an advocate..
