"Thank you for your email received on the 28th of August 2013 regarding your child support payments.
We have not recovered any further information in which to enforce collection of child support from Mr XXXX.
We will now see if the case meets the criteria to be referred on to the legal team.
This can be a lengthy and involved process so we are not able to provide you with a timeframe.
If you have any new queries in the future, please do not hesitate to contact us."
So, um.. "We'll see, but we won't tell you when you'll know."
I guess that's something? I'm just not sure what. Oh yeah, and their site is back up and I did the maths. The current debt is $10,086. Less about $200 if he suddenly starts paying the $30 a month he's supposed to pay for this year. That's more than I thought. It'd pay for a fair bit of tuition now, wouldn't it?
