We haven't been told a thing. He tried convincing me the garnishment would start in Janaury. Impossible if you look at the timing of things.

It's REAL simple...you get your paycheck...if NO money has been withheld, YOU PAY THE APPROPRIATE AMOUNT OF CS TO THE STATE! Then when you get your next paycheck...ya do the SAME DAMN THING!

...he should be paying it, and if it ISN'T coming out of his check, he should send her the money, 100%.

I was under the impression, from her posts, that there was already a withholding order, and it was expected to start in February, which would be a reason to NOT pay her directly in February, until the first check came, and it wan't taken out.

It IS only Feb 8th, and I will not recieve MY first Feb. paycheck until tomorrow, so it is feasible that he does not know it isn't being withheld. And, like I said, it does NOT excuse PAST behavior.

In my state (Indiana) there is a time frame spelled out by law. After the employer received the order of garnishment the employer has like 3 weeks to start holding the support money and sending them in. If the employer fails to do so they can be held liable and pay fines and such.

Until the garnishment order is in effect (actually they call it a wage-withholding order when child support is concerned) he is still legally responsible to pay support personally himself.

IF there is a wage withholding and the hold up is on DFAS, I don't blame him for not paying CS twice. DFAS can be held up with BS red tape, why should he pay twice?

I would not trust my ex to return an overpayment, and no court would make him repay it to me either.

Yet I still don't understand this reasoning under THESE conditions. He gets his check, there's no garnishment yet, he pays. But in his own words, he wants her to ask him for it, so he doesn't pay it. He's playing games. And the interest they're going to withhold on top of it may make his games come back to bite him and he'll deserve it.

Actually, I can be trusted to return overpayment. We discussed it.

It is more of a control issue on his side, I do believe. Almost Heaven has it right. He knows if the garnishment is taken out or not. If it isn't, then you pay. Simple.

He was very very verbally and mentally abusive to me and our kiddos. This is his way to keep it up.

---&gt; How could he possibly pay twice? You get your paycheck...if CS has been withheld, you do NOT have to do anything...if CS had NOT been withheld, you send in a payment. It's NOT rocket science!

ha ha ha ha knee slapper...I would not trust my ex and I sure as hell would not trust my husband's ex to do the right thing. If that kind of trust post divorce is a rarity.

We filed income taxes together since we were still married on December 31st. We also work together. I see him almost daily. I gave him my couch so he would have one for the rec room at his house. He helped move me to my new house. We get along much better now than we ever did. Weird, yes.

My only question was how long does it take for DFAS to do their thing....
