Hopefully you all saw my post below and you sent an email to those who would raise child support w/out consideration for the second families:
Now we need you to appear in person. We need you, your kids, your husband, your in laws, and the rest of your family to come protest what is going on with regards to family court and child support. There aren’t that many chances to get in front of the Director of DSHS, his minions, WA state senators, and all those who are for and against the corrupt “system” here but THIS IS IT! Please, please come. Our strength is in numbers. I went to one of these public meetings a few years ago and it was amazing! We were able to head off an increase in child support and we can do it again with your help!
THE STATE OF WASHINGTON WANTS TO RAISE YOUR CHILD SUPPORT
Come To an Important Meeting and Let Your Voice Be Heard
As if the economy isn’t already bad enough, non custodial parents are now being threatened with drastic child support increases this year. Child support payors have the opportunity to have their voices heard in a public meeting to discuss the Washington State Child Support Schedule and how it affects them and their families. If you are a Non Custodial Paying parent (or wife or child of) can you afford a 40% increase in your monthly child support payments?
The Child Support Schedule Workgroup, established by the Washington State Legislature, is holding a meeting to hear comments, suggestions, and ideas. They need to know where payors stand on this issue; otherwise, they will press forward with their agenda of passing laws which will increase payments and financial burdens of the paying parents.
It causes stress and costs time, money and missed wages to have child support set or to combat increases by DSHS in court, but your chance to make your voice heard and to stop this continued state sponsored attachment of a parent’s hard earned income. Take this opportunity to make recommendations for the schedule or to make other suggestions for changes to child support laws.
Public input meetings will be held from 2:00-4:00 pm:
Saturday, September 13, 2008 at the Hilton Airport Hotel, 301 W. 6th Street, Vancouver, WA 98660 (Tel. 360-993-4500)
Saturday, September 27, 2008 at the Doubletree Hotel Seattle Airport 18740 International Boulevard, Sea Tac, WA 98188 (Tel. 206-246-8600)
