I have been divorced for almost a whole year now, but I have been away from my ex-husband for almost 2 years now. With that said, I have raised my daughters without his financial support since we split. In the divorce, it is written that he is to pay X amount of dollars (a very tiny amount to be honest), however I have yet to see a penny. I went down to the child support office to see if there was anything that could be done to enforce the court ordered child support, but they advised me that since my ex receives an SSI check, they cannot do anything to make him pay. How is that possible? I can't even receive any state assistance (like a check) because I supposedly make too much money to receive aid. Is there anything I can do, other than going through the court process all over again, to get the money that my babies are entitled to? To be honest, I am making ends meet, but it does take two to make a baby, and I feel it is only fair to make him have to contribute, as well. Anything thoughts? Advice? ANYTHING?
