McPherson County??
« on: February 16, 2019, 08:48:57 PM »
Has anyone had any experience with McPherson county trustee's office? They aren't sending me any paperwork to notify me that they are having my ex come in. I get nothing. They also don't enforce. They said the judge just doesn't do anything and I should go through child support services. Ok but then is the same judge involved then too?

In Kansas, all family law issues are civil cases and follow the rules of civil procedure.  Of course each court can have their own "local rules" in how they conduct daily business, but state law requires parties of a case to be notified.  This is called "service."  Take a look at www.kslegislature.org and look at state statute 60-206.  Attorneys can only have an "ex-parte" hearing if there is an emergency.  Otherwise, there should be a motion filed in the case, all records kept (which you can obtain from the court) and a docket held to schedule the hearing.  Also, pursuant to chapter 60, they must notify you 7 days in advance of the hearing.  10 days if it is sent US mail.

Thank you for that. I wonder if their way around that is because he doesnt actually see the judge. He comes in a few months in a row then they might skip a month or two then bring him back. But he only meets with the trustee in a room at a table never with the judge. When I had my case first transferred I found out about it and went in and I dont think the trustee appreciated that. He was like can I help you? This meeting is for him? But I've always gone when my case was in different counties. Its weird that that haven't brought him to the judge. The secretaries just say they are doing all they can and the judge won't do anything and I should go through the state.

At the end of the day, his support payments will be calculated into a total arrerage calculation.  He will eventually be required to pay you.  If you're still not receiving money, that's rather troubling.  There are plenty of folks that speculate the system is completely corrupt.
