Child Support and SSDI Lump Sum Back Payment

My ex-husband (the non-custodial parent) was recently approved to receive SSDI. Our son will receive a lump-sum payment and monthly payments. My ex has filed a petition not only to stop paying child support, but also to force me to turn over our son's lump-sum payment to him, stating that the lump-sum is meant to repay him for child support he paid during the SSDI application period.

I'm hiring an attorney. Does anyone know of a similar case? If so, what was the outcome? Thank you very much.

If you can afford to pay an attorney then you should try to find one that specializes in this type of case. Every case is different as well as state laws so you may wish to check as many places as possible (SS office, child support offices, etc).

According to your income, you may be able to get free legal services for something like this. Be sure to keep copies of all communication concerning this matter.

Talk to your local Social Security Office and you local Office of Child Support Enforcement. My opinion is that you shouldn't need an attorney, once the Office of Child Support Enforcement is involved.

Child support services retured the garnishment for all back due support , because the ss monthly payments was hirer then the monthly child support payments. And now i have to pay taxs on the ss money i received, which you never pay taxs on child support.So i got screwed and he walked away oweing nothing..he got paid for not paying .Thats CALIFORNIA the rip off state , and no free attry service will help you fight a state office . So unless you have money , and all of us solo parents dont , your out of luck. and pay taxs on the money you didnt get....
