Quote from: ocean on Jun 11, 2013, 03:13:34 PMOffer to meet half way?Little confused because if you are primary parent, why would you pick up and drop off to mother if you have custody of them?Send her an email/text/registered letter in mail (written proof so you can save it): "As per our court order, I have kids 2 weekends during your summer visitation. I would like to see them on xx and xx weekend. If these do not work for you, please send me alternate weekends that I can see them". See what happens.When this order was written, were you 100 miles apart? Are the kids school age yet? It seems a lot of travel every other weekend but if it works....Child support- Go to your child support state unit and ask for enforcement. If they won't or drag their feet, go to family court house and ask to file: contempt of court papers for non-payment of child support. Does she have a job that can her check get be garnished? file taxes that can be garnished? Driver's license suspended? Non-payment that much in my state would land her a few days in jail. File and let her answer why she is not paying. It is up to her to modify the existing orders. If you are not with your state child support agency, go there and file to have them take over.
Quote from: ocean on Jun 11, 2013, 04:09:25 PMCall child support and say: "how do I get this case into your enforcement division"?Call family court and ask if the filing papers are online or if they can send them to you. Here we can print them out online, fill them out and send them back in for court date. You are looking for "contempt of court for non-payment for child support".You can hold your ground and tell her "it is father's day and want to spend the time with the kids, if you want them for your summer break either a. come get them at xx time from my house or b. come get them on Monday if that works better for you. I will not be driving them to you as that is not court ordered" Then ignore until she gives you an answer. You can also ask for modification of visitation as you are now xx miles apart. Are kids school age? I would not start this paperwork until next school year starts so kids are in school by you. Maybe offer one long weekend a month according to school breaks instead of all that driving or if she stays in your area more time. Are the kids okay with the drive? I am thinking as soon as kids get a little older this will not work anyway and you will be back in court. You can say that you have not received child support and can not keep up with the travel costs until she starts to pay. If she does not start paying soon, and you are on top of child support they will go after her license. You sure she has a license? Ask child support if they suspended it yet? That is the first threat they use here.
QuotePapers say June 15th, 6pm. This falls on fathers day weekend. Both mom and I are in a disagreement about how the kids should get to her. she says i have to drop them off at her house because the 15th falls on fathers day weekend. Papers state that on fathers day weekend I am suppose to pick them up from her and drop them back off, BUT the papers also say that during the start of her possession periods, she is to pick them up from me.
