I would go to the clerk's office and get a copy of the return of service for the garnishment. There should also be an answer from the employer. If they stated that he worked there and that they would withhold , then you can file a request to add them as parties and request the court to order them to show cause why they should not be held in contempt. You will need to be able to show how much they should have withheld and the interest due you. I suggest that you get a local attorney to help that knows child support. You may be able to sign up with your local IV-D agency to asist you. Good Luck.
Then the answer and steps are the same. If they sent half the money that means they answered the court. You may not have gotten a copy of the answer, but check the clerk's office. You will still take the steps I outlined, with the exceptiob of getting IV-D help. Good Luck.
