What can i do about late child support payments?

me ex is suppose to deposit child support on fridays. it is very rare that it actually gets there on that day. i try to be understanding about it cause i know things can come up, but there are some weeks that dont go in until thurs/fri. i never know and it makes it hard to figure out finances each week. ive tried to call the weeks that it is so late, but he wont talk to me. ive tried to tell the new wife if she could just let me know on the weeks that it is going to be late, just to let me know what day it might get there. he is court ordered to call kids 2x week. usually on the weeks that he is so late, he dont call. but if he does i try to ask him then when it might be and he just gets mad, what can i do?

I would contact the Attorney General's Office child support division and have them get involved. It can be set up that he pays them and then they in turn would issue you a check. He may take it more seriously if the State is involved. The State can also garnish his paycheck so you can be guaranteed payments.

Quit being so understanding and contact your lawyer.

Just start documenting every time he is late with payments or doesn't call from now on. Gather any cancelled checks or any proof you have of previous late pays. Notify the court of his lack of cooperation on the child support and let them enforce it. As for the contact with the kids he is making his own problem there. Only use that info if he files for custody. Otherwise, stay out of it. You don't need to call him other than for the kids sake. You aren't his wife or mother. Let law enforcement back you up.
