Ex working and living in Kuwait as contractor
      #774722 - 01/18/12 06:48 AM

My ex has not paid child support since he left the Army. He disappeared completely for the past 3 years. Hasn't paid child support or seen our child during this time. I have just be informed of his whereabouts via an anonymous letter from some woman he must have ticked off. Turns out that he has been giving his girlfriend (who he cheated on me and left me for) about $1400 every month according to the letter. I now have his mailing address over there and the amount of money he is making (over $90k a year) and want to know if I can now file a claim with child support enforcement to get a garnishment of his wages started. I am unsure of how this works seeing as how he is physically in Kuwait but working for an American company and all. Does anyone know?

Just some FYI for someone in a similar position that may stumble upon this post - I just contacted the local CSE agency and turns out the woman who sent the letter was correct. As long as the deadbeat is working for an American company the wages can be garnished.

Yes, his wages can be garnished since he works for an american company. Let CSE handle the mechanics. Something else occurred to me. These contractors working in Iran and Quwait want their employees to be "clean", with no criminal record, debt problems or pending suits in the US, and, depending on the task of the employee, need people with a security clearance. You are probably in a good position to force the ex to pay up immediately and stay current or get him fired. You might think of writing your congressman about the non-payment of child support supported by a copy of the motion to enforce it and copying the CEO of your ex's company.

Let CSE do their job, if he's gainfully employed and on the books, wage garnishment will kick in soon enough. No need to jeopardize his job.

How far is he in arrears? If he is more than 5K in arrears (or $2500 I cannot remember) it could effect his passport and re-entry into the U.S.

Google this: Section 51.60 (a) (2) of Title 22 of the Code of Federal Regulations

My husband's co-worker's ex wife works in Italy and is thousands behind in support. I know she is having a passport problems because she is on some "naughty list" with the U.S. state department and there is some kind of flag on her passport.

Getting him fired eliminates or postpones the OPs chance at collecting CS. I'd recommend being *very* certain of what the desired result is and treading carefully to get it. I'm not saying let him off the hook, but CS calculations on $ -0- income equals zero CS.

There are deadbeats I wouldn't mind seeing in jail even if cs drops to zero. Being fired from a cushy assignment in Quwait would probably be good for him. He can ind a job as security guard at Walmart.

The OP is trying to collect cs; getting the ncp fired, jailed and employed at minimum wage seems counterproductive to that.

The cs is 3 years in arrears on cs based on his army pay. The Kuwait junket is not benefiting his children. It seems in fact to have turned him into an irresponsible gigolo.

"The cs is 3 years in arrears on cs based on his army pay. The Kuwait junket is not benefiting his children. It seems in fact to have turned him into an irresponsible gigolo. "

And having him fired, jailed and working a minimum wage job will benefit the children? He is working a job with garnishable wages, why would you try to change that when cs is so easily enforced now?
