Maybe everyone else knows this, but I didn't. I always thought that the Government could garnish disability for child support, but I found out different yesterday.
My daughter-in-law and I went to the Child Enforcement Agency yesterday to see why they had not garnished her exs' disability that he just received-along with alot of back pay. He is about $10,000, or more behind.
We were told she was out of luck on any type of garnishment, assignment, etc. It seems if you draw SSI(which is different than SS), it cannot be garnished. The reason being, that this person didn't work for some time, have enough work credits, etc, so since they dont' make much monthly with their SSI check, they cannot be touched. The SSDI can be garnished.
This jerk quit work years back to evade the child support and found a doctor and told him he was ADHD and Bi-Polar, anyway he got it and is due abot 9,000 more on back pay.
I thought they were wrong, so I went straight to an attorneys office and he confirmed it.
Just thought I would pass this along for those of us that didn't know..karen
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
