Washington Child Support Errors by DSHS

Has DSHS mishandled your case?

Are you owed a refund?

Have you overpaid your Washington child support obligation?

According to DSHS' own internal investigations, parents alleging wrongful child-support garnishments is a "common complaint".  In the vast majority of cases, however, such complaints fall on completely deaf ears. 

DSHS' position often seems to be that you are a dead beat parent and a bad person if your child support is collected by he state.  Therefore, tough luck, you should have brought our error to our attention quicker.  So, somehow it's your fault.

As a result, few complaints seem to be taken seriously.  Over the years, however, we have seen DSHS make numerous errors both in the calculation and in the collection of child support.  If you believe that you have been a victim of DSHS' errors, we can help.

Listen, we understand.  Dealing with DSHS can be a nightmare, especially when the are clearly at fault.  If possible, they will apparently try to deny and b bury your claim and deny you a refund in any way possible.

If you believe DSHS made a mistake in your case, we encourage you to call our offices and speak with one of our experienced Washington child support attorneys.
