– from Victor I. in Greenfield, WI
I am a divorced father of two children. My wife and I were divorced almost three years ago, and she was awarded custody. I was ordered to pay child support, and I paid it voluntarily for about two years. About a year ago, I started forwarding the money directly to my ex-wife. She said she wasn’t receiving the full amount that I was paying through child support, so I figured that it would be best to pay her directly. Now, child support enforcement is claiming that I haven’t paid in almost a year. Does the money I gave directly to my ex-wife count as towards child support?
