You could sue the employer here if they failed to with hold child support , say there was garnishment order to withhold it monthly and they failed to do so.

Also know here you can file a creditor claim against the ex's estate here as well and you can receive survivors benefits from social security.These are payable to the children until age 18 and will help support them.

But you could file a civil suit against employer if they failed to honor the court's orders.I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated,
