Dear Ray Answers,
I know it's the holiday, and I wish you a happy new year, and your answer can wait until after the holiday.
I am not interested in having the child support to be jusdt electronically withdrawn from my ex's account. He has a history of frequently being overdrawn.
In Florida, where I live and I believe you are from, the State (and I believe it is the Dept of Children and Families) can have child support payments sent to the dept. to be handled or electronically withdrawn. When a payment is late, the State then handles it.
I just want the games to stop. I just want having to "handle it" to stop. Therefore, I am interested in this Florida program.
My question is, can I hire you or another attorney to set this up, can I just call the Clerk of the Court or DCF to set this up or do I have to let him be 30 days behind (in part or full payments) before I can set up this payroll deduction by DCF. I would be willing to pay more than $15 for a correct answer and additional help. Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX new year.
