Child support bureaucrats

I just got this in the mail:
P.O. Box 980218
Sacramento, CA 95798

September 21, 2006
Participant Number: 199000001xxxxxx
Case Number: 1990000001xxxxx

Welcome to the California Child Support Automation System. As part of the child support program, we must keep your child support case information in the California State Case Registry and also send it to the Federal government. The Department of Child Support Services (DCSS) or the federal government may give the information to courts, California and other child support agencies, and sometimes to the other parent of the child(ren) if there is a current order to do so. If you or your children are victims of family violence, you may not want DCSS or the federal government to share your case information. If you wish to prevent information sharing, let us know and we may be able to place a family violence indicator (FVI) on your case restricting information exchange.

If you believe you or your children are a victim of family violence, contact the Customer Service Center at 1 866 349 7540 and request a family violence questionnaire.

Additionally, if the employer of a parent who is required to pay support is served a California Income Withholding Order, DCSS will process the child support payments through a centralized payment processing unit. In California, the centralized payment processing unit is called the State Disbursement Unit (SDU).

NOTE: Please keep this notice for future reference as it contains your specific case number and participant identification number.
Then there is some telephone info in various other languages.

I really don't know what this is all about. My guess is that there are state bureaucrats who somehow profit from getting more people in their system. Maybe they profit from domestic violence allegations, as they are encouraging that. It appears that there are some privacy rights that only belong to those who make phony domestic violence allegation. Weird.

Now that’s scary... These support enforcement people are clearly mentally handicapped. I’m from a different state and I’ve received strange letters that left me wondering what am I supposed to do with this. I’ve also received very polite letters that sound like we’re supposed to be friends now that they are providing me with the service of taking money from my paycheck. But what I really like is when they can’t even get their math right and send super threatening letters out of the blue. They have no concept of telling you what you owe, why, and for what period of time (like any other biller has done for decades).

My Blog Domestic Relations Disaster profile contains contact info. My Blog is new and I’ve started with many child support enforcement issues relating to the 5 errors they’ve made on my case in less than 2 years.
