Man wrongly docked $40G

The NY Post reports:
A Brooklyn father is hoping for a rebate of more than $40,000 he has overpaid in child support since 2003, according to court papers.

Francois Jadotte contends that the city kept garnisheeing his wages -- at the rate of $121 per week -- even after his daughter turned 21.
So he was still being forced to pay child support for a daughter who turned 21 in 2003? That makes her 28 years old this year.

I object to calling this "child support". None of this money went to support a child. She wasn't even a child. And she did not get any of the money. It was just a tax that went into the city bank account.

Nothing surprises me about the "system" which claims to be fair and take care of "the children." But, why did he only complain after 5 years and not much sooner? I know if he is like me, he could have used that $121 a week at the time instead of rolling the dice on getting a settlement on a lawsuit (less having to pay the attorney). The government is corrupt from the bottom up. What can we do?
