If I'm assigned a civil judgment by the original judgment

If I'm assigned a civil judgment by the original judgment holder, and I discover the debtor has unclaimed funds held either by a county in Ohio or the State of Ohio, what do I need to include with and write in the Claim paperwork so that the Treasurer doesn't contest the claim?I've read about several cases where civil judgment holders request a writ of garnishment to serve whichever department handles the unclaimed funds for their area, only to have to go through a court battle to prove that the government department is only a custodian for the money and a writ of garnishment is both relevant and enforceable. I'd like to know how exactly I need to enforce a judgment in this scenario to bypass that problem for Ohio. For example, are there previous cases in Ohio that I need to cite preemptively? And if so, which ones?

My ex husband has not paid child support in over 6 years. He

my ex husband has not paid child support in over 6 years. He currently has a job and I would like him to pay what he owes. It was court ordered but I do not want to file a contempt charge and go through mediation. I just left the courthouse and they told me that was the only way. my friend told me that she went through the Department of Revenue to handle the situation. Is that an option for me? The DOR told me to file an affidavit wit the courts but when I went down there she said I had to file a contempt packet which requires mediation.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: FloridaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Yes back in 2010. They told me the balance as of right now is over $63KJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't think so. I know he was unemployed for a long time because he is an alcoholic. He is sober now and has a job.
