I have been paying my ex-wife child support directly and I

I have been paying my ex-wife child support directly and I just found out that she contact DCS, lied to them that I was not paying and has been having my wages garnished for the past year! I didn't think to look for it on my pay stub because I never received notice from DCS...after discovering they were very apologetic about the situation and are researching it for me now. We all know this is morally reprehensible but my question is has she done something illegal? What's my recourse?

I am currently going through legal with my ex wife. In late

Good Afternoon - I am currently going through legal with my ex wife. In late March I filed a retraining order on my ex wife because my daughter came home with a black and blue eye that her mother gave her. (Not to get into it too much but my daughter was coming home saying her mother hits her, says she's dumb, has dumb eyes and her freckles are ugly.) Her mother didn't take her to school for 20plus days throughout the school year. One time when she did take her to school she sent her in DIRTY DIRT BLACK clothing. May 16th we went to the court for the protective order hearing. The judge yelled at my ex a few times in the court to conduct herself in his room because this wasn't a laughing matter; however the judge lifted the protective order saying at that time he found it to be an isolated incident but if I wanted to modify and bring back the case I can. My ex wife and I had 50/50 custody. After this incident my ex agreed to modify the plan with only getting my daughter every other weekend. I sat my daughter down and told her his new arrangement. My daughter started shaking, crying and had such fear and anxiety. It was at that time that I decided I would not be doing right by my daughter if I sent her back to her mother. I decided that I wasn't going to send her back and file for full custody with supervised visitation. I called the school and got my daughters work for the last 2 weeks of school. Jumping forward. My ex filed an emergency ex parte pick up order and a motion of contempt. The judge denied her ex parte order. It just so happens she filed that 2 days before I was able to file the modification. I have filed the modification and now my ex has filed an addendum motion of contempt with the court. Today I received a standard letter in the mail from an attorney who assisted my ex on her addendum motion of contempt. In this she mentions that I haven't paid child support, wants to hold me in contempt and wants to have additional time sharing with my daughter for the time she's missed. My question is what happens now? What should I expect? Does my ex still have to answer my petition? Which comes first? (To add a note about child support. I was ordered to pay $125 a week; however my ex wife was ordered to pay 50% of all of my daughters expenses. My ex would demand cash and I told her I was not paying cash but that she needed to pick up the additional paper work and file through the state and I would be more than happy to do this. My ex every month would end up owing me after health insurance, school lunch & our daughters extra curricular actives - she has never paid a time to any of this. I even have proof of attempting to cerify her the medical bills that she would not sign for.) Thank you!

Can someone help me with questions about an on going Family

Can someone help me with questions about an on going Family court matter about child support and visitation with an ex-girlfriend. She's hired a lawyer and I can t afford one. I'm representing myself and it's possible that her and I might be able to propose an agreement on things about support and visitations however, when I submitted something to her she responded promptly and seems willing to work something out in order to stop anymore future legal fees she's incurring. But, I'm not including maybe all I can to benefit me from any future problems or matters I should be concerned about. If this proposal sticks I want to make sure I get everything I need in there especially if she's agreeing now.
