“The child support recovery system routinely stops the transfer of tens of thousands of dollars each month, paid by parents, holding those funds indefinitely and with out explanation. The result is that the paying parent is sent letters informing them that they will have their drivers license taken, along with their vehicle and will be jailed. These letters originate from the very same offices that have received the child support payments on behalf of the parent, but who have, intentionally refused to transfer the funds to the families they were meant for.

______________________________________________
In several states, the pursuit of federal kickbacks for agencies involved in child support recovery has resulted in the offering of employees bonuses for generating more child support collections, even if those collections are based on false allegations and as a result of withholding child support funds paid into the system. At this time, a complete and independent audit of the accounts in Child Support Recovery in every state where this same system has been implemented, needs to be done. Determining how, why and who is refusing the release of these child support payments to the families with dependent children, should be cause for criminal charges against the agency and its agents.

Unfortunately, nothing of the kind will ever happen. Child Support Recovery is one of the most lucrative money making systems that benefits everyone but the families and children it was intended to benefit. The massive funding received from the federal government along with monthly handling fees are all used to support another monstrous agency that is more interested in self preservation than anything else. As long as the states can continue to access massive funding from the federal government, nothing will ever be done.

In 2013 the request for funds from the Federal government for Child Support enforcement was 1,100,000,000 to be divided among the states. Federal involvement in child support systems within the states resulted in one of the largest federal money mills ever devised and one routinely milked by the states at the expense of children and families.

Let that sink in for a moment.  The amount of money requested is so staggeringly huge, that it boggles the mind.  Doubtless, this amount is far greater by leaps and bounds than the total child support owed by all parents, TOTALLY, across the country.  And that 1,100,000,000 was just for ONE year!

So what is this really about?  When you are financing a system that needs horrendously huge financing that far exceeds the amounts you say you need to collect in payments to the system…….did it occur to anyone that something is terribly wrong in this system?

Who are the real deadbeats??

The child support recovery system routinely stops the transfer of tens of thousands of dollars each month, paid by parents, holding those funds indefinitely and with out explanation. The result is that the paying parent is sent letters informing them that they will have their drivers license taken, along with their vehicle and will be jailed. These letters originate from the very same offices that have received the child support payments on behalf of the parent, but who have, intentionally refused to transfer the funds to the families they were meant for.

As a side note: If your vehicle or any other property is taken under these false charges, you will NOT get your property back. It will be sold by your local or county law enforcement agency, whomever facilitated the warrant in one of their private, by invitation only, auctions.

It is pointless to point out to the agents who are withholding the funds from the children they claim to be acting on behalf of, that the parent HAS made the payments, that CSR HAS the funds on deposit and that CSR is intentionally withholding those funds. Some of the rudest, most obnoxious, and unprofessional individuals you will ever have the misfortune of speaking to are manning the phones in CSR offices.

  • To top it off:
  • They don’t know anything,
  • Can’t find out anything and
  • Don’t have to tell you anything.
  • They cant do anything for you,
  • They can’t look up anything,
  • They can;t explain anything,
  • and have no intentions of even trying.
  • All the records are filed away,
  • Sealed,
  • Off-limits,
  • Inaccessible.
  • They are really busy with something and must hang up.

This was never about the kids

Its also pointless to contact senators or representatives about this, or any one else for that matter. There are billions of dollars paid in the form of kickbacks from the federal government to “Family” courts for increasing the amount of child support assessed and collected. They are not about to give up this lucrative system of financing over something as trivial whether or not the parent actually paid. After all, if you can force the paying parent to a pay a second time just to stay out of jail, that’s just more money in the bank!

The “Family” court judge has a vested interest in increasing child support payments as those courts receive direct kickbacks from the federal government for increasing the amount determined to be paid.

“Family” courts are really special though……they can issue court orders based on hearings that no one was notified were pending, and which as it turns out, were never scheduled to begin with and never even took place. In these instances, which are many, the “judge” simply rubber stamps a blank form and passes it back to the agency.

From those funds that they have collected, the Department of Revenue takes a cut, the CSR agency takes a cut and the “court” takes a cut. Then there are the court fees for the hearing that most likely never took place, but for which a “family” court judge signed as if it did.

Think this is illegal? Unconstitutional? Yes! It is!

But find even ONE senator or representative who will stand up and challenge this. “Family” courts, just like probate, and other administrative courts were constructed not to simplify the system and make it run more efficiently, but rather, to do an end run around the Constitution and your protected rights within it. Say for instance…….DUE PROCESS. In an administrative court, thanks to the statutes written by your local BAR Association, you don’t get no stinkin’ due process!

Family courts are not above the law…..in fact they have nothing to do with the law unless it generates more free money from the federal government. They operate under special statutes and codes that do not recognize your rights or the Constitution, or common law.

From Father’s For Life
Perhaps most startling is that by some accounts they claim to be exempt from the U.S. Constitution. Family courts describe themselves as courts of “equity” or “chancery” rather than “law,” implying they are not necessarily bound by due process, and the rules of evidence are not as stringent as in criminal courts. As one father reports being told by the chief investigator for the administrator of the courts in New Jersey, investigating a complaint in 1998: “The provisions of the U.S. Constitution do not apply in domestic relations cases since they are determined in a court of equity rather than court of law.” A connected rule, known as the “domestic relations exception,” prevents federal courts exercising constitutional review over family law cases.
Traditionally, a conflict exists over who has control over domestic relations. Most have decided that family law is the exclusive domain of the states and the federal courts refer to this as “domestic relations exception”.

Q. If it is in fact a domain of the states, would that not be rendered void when the states subjected themselves to federal laws and statutes and then accepted subsidies and grants in lieu of states rights?
Q. Wasn’t the states domain rendered void when they took the federal funds after implementing federal business plans called Child Support Recovery?
Q. Does this not put the issue of “Family”courts, including Child Support Recovery squarely in the federal courts and no longer the business of unconstitutional administrative courts who do not operate with deference to the law?

Also, in these kangaroo courts, just as in the probate kangaroo courts after due process is denied, the “judge” will refuse any cross exam of witnesses/accusers and most especially will not allow any refutation of any agency personnel and the charges they levy. In too many cases the after charges are made, there is NEVER a court hearing, but it will be recorded as if there was. The opportunity to cross-examine, or present evidence to refute the charges never occurs.

This isn’t about the kids.  This is about the states tapping into massive federal funding and financing what is nothing less than a monstrous dysfunctional and abusive agency in every state.  Tied to that are bonuses, quota’s and other incentives to up the anti…….even if it means withholding the payments to families and cooking the books.
