US Government/Welfare/Child Support Enforcement Complaint - Government At It Again!!!
PALMYRA, PENNSYLVANIA -- I rec'd a letter in the mail yesterday from the Dept. of Child Support Enforcement letting me know that I now have to pay an annual fee of $25 to have my child support collected/disbursed. I called them and they said it was a federal law that just went into effect. Anyone that receives more than 2K in support in a year has to pay it for administrative costs. Isn't that what my tax money already goes for? Oh yeah, if I rec'd public assistance then I don't have to pay it. What a crock!!!! It will come directly out of my child's support payment. That is not what this money is for, to pay administrative costs. I choose to go to work every day to support my son, I didn't choose to get food stamps, public assistance, although it would be very easy to do. So the way I figure it, if you get roughly $38.46 or more per week in support (doesn't matter how many kids this is supporting) you have to pay it. If you have more than 1 case (I don't) open, then each case is charged $25.00. I am so furious just on the principle of this that I could strangle someone!!! How the hell did they sneak this one by? I have already contacted my US rep, local rep and local news stations. We will see.
I wish the fricken government could be sued. Please call the Bureau of Child Support and complain if you see fit: 800-932-0211
