I had to personally pay for the DNA testing to prove the child was NOT mine.
After the test results were turned over to Monterey County, they said paternity didn't matter because I had accepted this child into our household for more than 6 mos.
No. they would not do that. They just wanted the support money and made me pay...no matter the findings
Then, they went back through all the years and added $42K for back child support.
why couldn't that have been done then?
do i need to re-establish a paternity test and ask it to be done per court order now? or can the results I submitted back then be utilized?
Wow! I am upset because I was told I could NOT fight this based on The Bastard Law in CA 1989.
Is that right?
Thank you. Have you ever heard of this Bastard law? Will they drop all the past due charges, 62K, etc if paternity is established?
I submitted the DNA testing and they said that based on the Bastard Law, it didn't matter. Imagine that!
Yes. They know who the TRUE FATHER is but have never pursued him as he is a lowlife with no income. they continue to go after me.
thank you. I appreciate your time.
can we cross-file to get the money back? I've been garnished for many many years.
can we cross-file to get funds back?
oh, I see. Thank you. I will do my best. Geeeez! This has been nuts.
The reason I am contacting you on this date is because I just got another letter today, stating that they were going to increase the garnishment.
they have spent years taking all my income tax returns, bonuses, etc.
any other suggestions regarding this matter??
thank you. have a nice day.
