Back Child Support and SSDI

I'm owed $46,000 in child support. My ex was approved for SSDI and backpay. He just started receiving checks.There was a judgement made for so much to be paid to me for back child support out of each check. He will also get back pay for 3 years, will I receive that also to pay off what he owes?

Call your local Social Security Office and ask them. They can give you the right answer. Something you should consider is your "ex" also has back bills to pay too.

my ex husband owes me $76,300. in back child support. he has hired a lawyer to stop me from getting any back payments and monthly checks. although child support agency is all over it trying to collect for me. i was told back in sept that i was to receive $11,000. in one lump sum for his back pay and i should be getting monthly checks as well. although it is now jan 2018 and i am still waiting.


it should all be here this month they just dont know what day. calling the s.s. office is a joke. they say its not my case its my exs so they will not tell me anything. i have a comment to the person who says the ex may have his own back bills. . . are you serious? who cares one bit for him and his back bills. if he would have been helping support his children in the first place he wouldnt have to worry about his s.s. checks being garnished.

Oh, I'm so sure some of you spouses use every evil scheme you can to stick a knife in the back of " that true love" you thought you had found in the beginning. Right is right, and wrong is wrong. Personally,I would love to hear your answer when GOD ask you, " what happened to till death do we part"? Both swore to before GOD. You may take our money, make us homeless, and grin all the way to the bank, but ye shall reap what you sew !!!!

Only the SS office can answer your questions.

I do have a question - how did you live all this time without child support? If you lived by receiving "support" from your government, family, friends or ? Will you be sharing your "back support" with them? I hope you were able to sustain yourself and your children through your own work efforts and any back support will be a repayment for your diligence.


I know that some may say why? or is it anybody's business?
Why? because maybe some support may have been paid with some of my (and others) taxes and will not be repaid.

Was your ex able to pay and just did not do so? How long over a period of time did this amount build up? Did you try to collect all along? Or did you decide to pursue this after he applied for SSDI?
All I am saying is I have found that if back child support is pursued through the court system, (and the person's whereabouts are known), the law will either "make" the father pay or go to jail.

Maybe Florida is different from other states but, "non-supporting" fathers that owe back taxes due through the court, will be "punished".
I am not saying this justice happens ALL of the time but it at least gives hope for these families.

I would hope that all support payments be required to be paid through the court and that will give the children/family a much better chance of receiving their support money.


You did not mention the age of the children but if age appropriate, will they now be receiving regular benefits also? Hopefully they will, and it should make all of your lives better.

Please go to your SS office and get correct answers to all of your questions.
