Is it worth ex getting a record to make him pay child support? - Page 2
Since he is self-employed he doesn't have a paycheck, and therefore there is nothing to garnish from. So my lawyers asked his bank to take the sum out of his account directly (I'm just saying, it is a small, sum just three digits), but the sum was not available in the account. That's as far as it can be taken through civil law. The next step would be a penal case, but it doesn't getme CS, it's just a punishment for shirking parental duties.
I have no idea what his money situation is, it's all very unclear. Some clues tell me he could very well pay the amount, other clues make me think he can't BUT, A) that's not MY PROBLEM, and B) MAYBE HE SHOULD GET A NEW JOB if he isn't making any money.
I would just ignore him, but I have two pre-teens here, who are half his, and the whole thing is just wrong.
p.s. All I can hope is that he changes jobs in the future, and becomes an employee, THEN I can garnish.
