Q) I have contacted the withholding office twice. They are taking out an extra $240 a month on back child support that is not owed. According to my calculations and the State of Illinois calculations. I am ahead more than a month. They tell me I need to appeal. I have and I am not arguing the amount that was owed at the time. That amount has been paid off for months according to the State of Illinois. I can’t get anyone in the withholding office to help me.
A) If you have contacted the withholding office twice and they are not helping you, you may want to consider taking the following steps:
- Get a copy of your child support order: Request a copy of your child support order from the court that issued the order. Review the order to ensure that the withholding amount is correct.
- Contact the State Child Support Enforcement Agency: If you are unable to resolve the issue with the withholding office, you may want to contact the State Child Support Enforcement Agency to file a complaint.
- File a motion with the court: If you are unable to resolve the issue with the withholding office and the State Child Support Enforcement Agency, you may want to file a motion with the court that issued the child support order to have the issue addressed. The motion should outline the issue and provide any evidence or documentation that supports your claim.
- Consider seeking legal assistance: If you are unable to resolve the issue on your own, you may want to consider seeking legal assistance. An attorney with experience in family law and child support issues may be able to provide guidance and representation in court.
