If your ex husband changes jobs frequently, lies about where

This answer was rated:

If your ex husband changes jobs frequently, lies about where he is working , if working, or goes on unemployment. And you have temporary orders already signed by the judge, (and the ex) to garnish wages for a fixed amount of child support, on the job that he was working at and immediately quit,and lied said he was going on unemployment, but actually does have a job.
I found out where he works and her lawyer is going to handle it but cant till tomorrow and he gets paid Friday and she hasn't received any child support ever.
What is the process that the lawyer has to do to get the wages from the company he is now employed at, to be garnished through the attorney generals office?
And if he continues to change jobs frequently does the state keep track of where hes working through SSi and immediately withdraw from that. Thanks, Brenda
Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.

The lawyer will have to get a garnishment order from the court to serve it on the new employer I am afraid, just like they have done on the previous employers. If he is in arrears of more than $2500, you need to ask the attorney to move the court to suspend his drivers license and passport as well, which puts more pressure on him. The attorney can also serve an order on unemployment to go on his record for garnishment of his unemployment benefits if he should get them and also serve the SSA regarding those benefits, since they can be garnished for child support.

Unfortunately, when someone keeps changing jobs, the spouse receiving support has to keep on it and keep notifying the court of the job changes and getting new orders of garnishment to put in place with the new employer. There is no real other way to do this quickly within the laws and the way the legal process is set up I am afraid.
