I filed in October and that started the process of creating the temporary stipulated order. Once that was in place (December) he had to pay me starting then. He was fairly good about giving me checks for a while. By the time the divorce was finalized in August, he had gotten behind... I waited until December to file the paperwork with the state, and they started garnishing in February.
Filed March 2009
Court Date beginning of September 2009
First garnishment mid/end October 2009
Yes it was pretty quick (in overall timelines compared to some) when you look at it written out, but it would've been a lot quicker had he complied with his paperwork instead of having my support officer get on his case about turning it in
8 weeks after I filed, they started taking it out of his paychecks and sending it to me. He didn't contest anything though.
One week after I filed, we were notified of the meeting date with a counselor, scheduled for 2 weeks from then. One week after that meeting we received the calculation and the support order. Four weeks after that is when his employer started taking it out of his paychecks. He was responsible for paying that amount though back to the day we had the meeting with the counselor.
