I am totally and permanently disabled with several doctor’s statements and I’ve been waiting for SS disability for 18 months. I have an active appeal and am waiting. I have lost my career with 100k a year. My X left taking all our home equity 84K and 52K in cash and 68K in credit in my name without my knowledge or consent. All legal in NC. I have lost my home and the home I had for my 71 year old mother. All that I worked for 50-60 hrs. a week for 34 years is gone, never been out of a job before my spinal injury and first two heart attacks. When my severance pay ended 04/08 I had no income at all. I stopped paying my child support on 05/08. My x has filled suit after suit on me causing me great hardship just to make the trips of 250 mls.
In July the child support enforcement agent lied under oath saying she had no record of my SS disability appeal or any other paperwork, even though I had a fax record when they were sent, a receipt from mailing them, and 4 weeks prior had handed her another copy of them in the courtroom. She then presented that I had sold a 30 year boat (the last thing I owned) for $4500 and did not use it to pay my child support. She claimed I was out fishing on my boat several times in the last few months(It hasn’t run in almost 2 yrs), always ate out at nice restaurants and spent lots of money on all kinds of things, under oath she swore she had interviewed many witnesses. When I asked Who, She just responded there were lot of them and also told her I lied about my health. She accused me of lying at least 20 times. I had proof but the judge would not look at any of my paper work. I had the papers to show that $1600 of the money went straight to the marina where the boat was kept, $900 the repair and get tags taxes for my old pickup, $1950 for my prescriptions for April and may when I ha a gap in my Medicaid and 4th heart attack was in April. All of my medical records and doctors statements and another copy of my SS disability appeal. The judge refused to look at any of it and said that should be given to the CS agent. He them promptly sentenced me to 30 days with a $4500 purge to be released. All of my request for lowering the CS or having it suspended have had a resounding “request denied”. They told me I need to hire a lawyer to have that done.
Last month my X had my bankruptcy thrown out for not paying CS even though I had paid all I had to pay when I still had an income and was paying my $850 CS.
The problem is I have NO money at all for the most basic of things and my X has become satin. She lives in a large house in an exclusive neighborhood that is paid for and has had 4 brand new cars the last 3 yrs.
I have survived only from family, friends and the grace of god.
