This marriage happened when I was 16 years old and I am now 41 years old. If I am able to get the child support never paid can his paycheck, or tax refund, be garnished if he has a legal job? He tends to work under the table for money.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
