If you follow the latest on child support news like we do, you may have come upon a recent story about Mississippi child support. Calvin McDonald Jr and Dionne McDonald, who live in New Mexico received a letter from Mississippi’s Department of Human Services telling him Calvin that he owed back child support. Now, Calvin has never fathered a child with any woman in Mississippi, nor does he live in Mississippi, is now being denied his tax return and having his wages garnished to pay support that he doesn’t owe. The couple is working with the DHS – but this hasn’t stopped the nightmare, or kept them from getting the money they are owed back from the government. It seems that when it comes to tracking child support, the state is failing to do so accurately.
Unfortunately, this type of state level mix up on child support is more common than you want to believe. In fact, when it comes to child support payments and tracking them, states and counties can make mistakes so glaring that they cost families time, money, and their health. While the case outlined here may seem extreme, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t you shouldn’t be cautious.
