Child Support Arrears
Posted 06 September 2012 - 01:32 PM
I live in California and I just started receiving arrears for child support from the absent parent. My child has emancipated but the non custodial parent still owed this money from years ago and it's now coming out of his social security. He has another case in another county and that child has emancipated as well. I am told by Child Support Services that the other case has more arreas owed to it and that I will only receive 34.00 dollars a month for support.
My question is since my case is the oldest and he owes me 3200.00; can the California State Disbursement unit split the money between the two cases? Also is there a law that states that the case with the most money owed should get the bulk of the money if the non custodial parent has multiple child support cases?
Thanks in advance for you help.

Since it appears this is what is happening, it should be fairly obvious that it can happen. And yes, it's legal.
The money withheld will be divided on a pro rata basis (e.g., if you're owed $35k and the other mother is owed $65k, you'll get 35% and she'll get 65%).
