California Law is adamant that parents ordered to pay child support are required to pay up on time, and in full. When payment is not made, DCSS can charge interest on unpaid support. But wait, it goes further. They will collect from Gaming winnings. Lottery Winnings can be taken just as quick as they were won.
This is due to the Lottery Intercept established to pay Child support from winnings. State Lottery actually has notification of who owes child support in the event that one of the fortunate people win big. In such a case, the winnings are reduced by child support amounts owed.
In one instance, a father who had won a major lottery in California received a $109,000.00 garnishment from his windfall. Subsequently, when his ex learned of his win, she took him back to court, receiving and a hefty increase from $210.00 a month to $3,056.00 a month in child support.
This may well be good reason to stay in contact with your Ex or good reason to keep him/her on your Facebook.
