I am a single mom of a 3 year old boy and i have yet to see a dime in child support. i live in WV and im STILL waiting for the courts to find my sons dad and get any support. why are men like that getting away with this crap and men like my boyfriend and brother who do the right thing and take care of their kids getting the poop end of the stick??? i just dont get it. sorry to vent but it feels good to get this off my chest. everytime i call child support enforcement they tell me "we are still working on it" and i'm like well hurry up...its not fair that i have to do this all alone while my sons father gets to do whatever he wants!!

AMEN SISTER!!!! I know exactly what your talking about I am in the same boat and have been for about 4 years now. I did the exact same thing and got the exact same response from child support. but it does not change anything to call they work within their own speed!!! If you know where your ex can be located and/or is working you can report that and that will help some. but I have learned with my situation that everytime they catch up with my ex he quits his job. I have learned to live and budget without it to not even consider it as an income because once it would start I would get exited about having extra income, become dependent on it and then it would stop. Sorry you have to go though it but in time it gets better and your ex will suffer in the end because of it

i know how you feel, ive been waiting for csa since my second child was 2 months old. hes nearly 3 now. csa are more of a joke then a company who do any thing,, i sent all my x's work information to them and they still dont do anything,, they now have found a problem in their system and i was told that id have to wait for it to be sorted out before my claim can go on.. i wrote and complained to the a manager and now they have looked into my case and (they are so say) moving it forward and have said by his pay day this month i should get the money im intittled to,, at long last but im not pinning my hopes on seeing it cos i know what csa are like... im fed up with being the one who had to do every thing and he gets away with out paying a penny,, csa have told me they can only back date it so far.. for some reason i dont no, i thought they would do it form day one.. try and complain in writing to the manager and see if that gets you any where, good luck x
