Today was the first of four that I know of. My atty was there to "talk" for me. WE were able to get her to provide proof that she got over 18,000 for my son. She was ordered to report this to the support office but she did not until today. They had to credit my account arrears account. They released the order to sequester my benefits to pay this. the total owed is base on me working the years (3 1/2) it took to get through the ssi process. They were not allowed by law to retroactively adjust this amount to reflect my true income of only $123 cash asst. and $140 in food stamps that I managed to survive on for those years. It was not easy but I was able to support myself with it. Many good friends and family helped a lot too.
I have to pay only $25 a month in current support in the new order today. That is great, I could not have dreamed of a better out come:) My Son will still get his $480 a month from ssi as long as I do. This should give her enough for his support.
I have to figure out where the money owed me from ssi is. I thought that it was in the escrow account at the support office but they said today that they never received any thing from my ssi. I called the ssi office today and they said that it had something to do with a insurance claim in 1993 for a on the job accident that caused me to be out of work to have both knees repaired from the auto accident. I used to deliver flowers for a flower shop. On a delivery one day some guy ran a light and hit my truck almost head on. I was unconscious for about three weeks and then did not remember who I was for another two. I had a lot of broken stuff. The flowerer’s flew from behind me and fractured my skull too. It was a bad few years but I got my self back to about 99%. Back to the topic, I do not know how they could take this money to "repay" the insurance companies for what they paid for me back in 1993. I have to talk to my ssi atty and have him check this one out.
Well did I win or not? I did, but I didn’t, I won to have it all over for the foreseeable future AND I lost because I had to pay over $1,000 to get her to follow her court order to give me the proof I needed. I had my atty ask the judge to make her pay his fee because she disobeyed the order and she did not show up for the last trial where I would have asked her under oath if she got the money and how much. This judge was the same one in that one and remembered her not showing up. She might have been still mad at her a bit. GOOD.
Well I have to start thinking about the next episode in court. It is in 10/14 for the pfa (protection from abuse) thing. Every thing she claimed in her petition is going to be very hard for her to prove true. That will be an easy one to get finished. I hope. I have to take all the new papers I got last week for this pfa and harassment too for my atty to read and get ready for round two.
Well I guess I will stop here. I hope all of you had a great day too…tom g
