If he is working full-time, do you have an wage assignment order in place? That way, the child support gets taken out of his paycheck by the employer so you don't have to rely on the dad to voluntarily pay you anything.
A: You should open a case with the Child Support Services Department. They will collect your child support for free. It takes 5 - 6 months for them to set up your case and actually start collecting for you, but they are a free service and have access to information and procedures not available to private attorneys, such as seizing his tax refunds, and access to a parent locator program. If your order is old, they may even update it for you. All in all, you should call them today and start your case. You can find contact information from them on line.
