Michigan Mother Collects $67,494.29 lump sum payment!
Child Support Enforcement Council


How We Helped Jason Receive Regular Payments

Jason came to our office for help when his son was about 6 years old. He had a child support order that was not getting paid. He lives in Indiana and at the time the mother lived in Iowa. During the time CSRS was collecting money from the mother she had to be tracked down in Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin and eventually Florida. She required several calls a month, sometimes to her husband, place of employer, land lord or a family member to get her attention. It was a continuous battle to collect her payment each month.

CSRS worked the case for 7 years and finally the mother was able to get the money to pay off the arrearage balance she owed to Jason. CSRS closed Jason's file now that his balance had been collected. Unfortunately the story doesn't end there… The mother slowly slacked off on her payments with each month that passed after CSRS had closed the case and eventually quit paying all together. Jason tried to utilize the county child support office in his area. They set a hearing for the case but when the mother failed to appear at her court hearing a body attachment was issued for her arrest. Unfortunately she now lives in Florida so the body attachment became useless unless she returned to Indiana.

After several years of receiving no child support at all Jason decided to contact CSRS again. By this time the mother had managed to go from a $0.00 arrearage balance to owing over $16,000.00 in just a few years. The good news is the mother remembered our office well and within a month she began to get her payments back on track and is continuing to send her child support on a regular basis.
