Thank you.

"Finally determined" generally refers to a decision made by a court or administrative agency. In other words, there can be preliminary determinations that you are delinquent based on an affidavit from the recipient or a review by the state agency, but if it is noted that the decision has not been finally determined it means that no actual hearing, where you could present any defenses or differences in facts, has occurred such that an appeal could be taken, for example. In most instances, "finally determined" means a court considering the issue has rendered a decision or Order.

I hope this helps. If you need more assistance, please reply to this email. If I answered your question and provided excellent service, I would greatly appreciate your 5 star rating at this time.

The OAG of TX is basing the "past due" amount from our divorce decree in 1994. I paid SEVERAL years in which he is claiming that I did NOT. He claims one amount owed on one document. A rudimentary spreadsheet claims another...the OAG has yet another amount plus interest. I have NEVER been notified of ANY hearings, except for hearsay by him. His original divorce attorney screwed up and only listed my then current employer and did not include "and any subsequent employers" or whatever the legal phrase should be. Since they are basing it on the "last court order," it seems as though I should not have to pay ANYTHING else. I received a letter saying "no further action is needed at this time." Yet, it shows an erroneous past due balance at the bottom of each month's "bill." Also, a young woman from the OAG office told me that there was another hearing scheduled MONTHS ago, yet the judge threw it out prior to the hearing date. I need HELP getting this erased.

One option to try to address this issue is to compile all your records of payment and send that to the OAG. You may consider including in that letter the fact that you never received notice of the relevant hearings. If you have the notice you received from the OAG and are willing to attach that to the email, I may be able to better assist you in identifying options. Also, was your child support withheld from your wages with your original employer?

It was withheld from the original employer from 2004-2007. The OAG has not given me "credit" for that. My ex filed when our child was 17.5 years old! There was NEVER a financial need. In fact, that was the same time I was diagnosed with several disabilities and can no longer work. I will never work again. I cannot pay for my own prescriptions or food. There HAS to be a reality check here somewhere. He ALWAYS made more than I even when I was working, AND i paid WAY over the 20% of net income allowed by TX law. Now they have sent me to the enforcement division, and I cannot get my car tags. I am about to get my license to carry (since I can no longer protect myself physically), and I am afraid they are going to stop that. I cannot afford the research fees from the various banks I have had over the past 16 years!

Would your former employer be wiling to help you out? This is a very frustrating situation I am sure. It would probably be advisable, given all the various issues involved to consult with a local attorney. If you have limited funds, you can visit your local legal aid office. If they are unable to help, the link here provides Texas specific assistance: http://www.tlsc.org or here https://texaslawhelp.org

I am happy to help how I can, but it sounds like you need a low or no cost attorney who is physically able to do the research necessary to dispute the OAG calculations.
