The fact that Huron County CSEA gets bragging rights in the news because of their increased hard work & collection efforts is a joke! The people who should be getting the "pat on the back" are the single parents that do the investigating FOR THEIR Case-Workers.

Amen to Single Mom for her comment!! She is 100 % correct!!
Why are we paying HC CSEA case workers for work they are NOT doing? We should hire all the single parents in their place!!!

Do it for the c...

I am sorry that you feel that way.Let me explain to you that I once felt the same way,until I took the time to listen to what the caseworker had to say. I discovered that my case was not the only case they have. How can I expect them to locate my ex spouse when I had no idea where he was, not to mention that he moved every two months and lets not forget about his “self-employment” or the fact that he goes from job to job. The employees at CSEA work very hard to bring in the money for the children. They do deserve bragging rights because of their increased hard work & collection efforts. I hope they continue to do it for the children.

It is certainly easy to critize when you are on the other end. I can tell you that those workers work hard and do a good job considering what they get paid. You have no clue what it is like to be on the other end of the phone listening to people complain about there children's father or mother, and there are plenty of dead beat moms also, having to take the verbal abuse they get. That worker isn't the one who put you in the situation you are in. You are the one who decided to have a child with that person you are now complaining about. What's even better is when you have a second child when they don't even take care of the 1st one. Who's fault is that? Did that worker tell you to go and have another one? I don't think so. In fact if they could they would probably tell you who not to produce with so that they wouldn't have to chase after the absent parent again for someone elses child. Maybe if our kids had better sex education at home and didn't rely on the schools to provide it we would have less irrsponible parents. Maybe if the parents were better examples to their children this cycle wouldn't continue.

As a single mother I know how tough it is to not get child support. I see first hand how difficult it is from both sides. As a mother who does not get support, I get angry and frustrated, but when I step back and look, I realize that no matter what he does or does not do to support our daughter, he gave me the biggest gift ever. If I never see a dime from him I know that my daughter will be loved. As a person who handles cases I know that we work hard. Not everyone wants to do the right thing, and unfortunately not everyone can be forced to do the right thing. The main thing to focus on is your child. Becuase when the child support ends, what else is there? Just the bond that you created with your child. Thats it. The money will end someday, but the love you give your child shouldn't. As for the fathers and mothers who do not support their children. Not only should you pay your child support, but you need to be a part of your childs life. Get to know them, because if you don't do it when they are younger you may never get that chance.

First off, it is not the responsibility of Huron County to raise your children!!! Get a job, keep your family together or better yet your legs. As a taxpayer too I am sick and tired of hearing you whine that you aren't getting our support. Go to work and support yourself and your children would be alot better off. If you couldn't get the man or woman to stay with you, how in the heck do you expect Child Support to get them to do anything. Get a clue. It is your fault your broke not the taxpayers or Huron County. Apply for their job, or can't you figure out how? Your children deserve better but don't blame someone else for your mistakes. If you didn't get his social security number and name and where he works before you laid with him then don't blame a caseworker for not being able to find him. If you are a man and you don't get visitation then take it up with the court. Child Support does not have anything to do with how often you see your child. You don't pay to see your children, you pay to get into Cedar Point. Understand the difference?
