I hope you can help me. I’ve exhausted every resource and my lawyer Todd Burbine from Clearwater pretty much took my money and ran. He helped with nothing and said that both Berkeley county and New York are lost. I’ll try and keep it short but its the worse clerical error I’ve ever had the pleasure of dealing with. This situation has put both my 3 year old son and wife in the poor house. We had to move in with my mother in 2012. So basically I started to pay child support Dec 21st 2010 and everything seemed fair financially even though the visitation was never enforced. Tara L. Cooke or Tara Cook SS# (removed) both of which she uses to confuse the system lived in NY at the time of support was ordered. She wanted to receive her support quicker because Berkeley county was taking it out of my pay check then sending it to NY then her. So I obliged. Well in 2012 I changed jobs and had a financial modification done in Berkeley county to 151 semi-monthly or 302 a month from my checks File# 0786113. 2 months later when NY took over they moved it to 298 semi-monthly putting me way above the percentile barrier from which is legal not to mention dropping that job and getting even a lower paying job at 9 bucks an hour. Well while I was trying to talk with NY, I had the cops knocking on my door stating that I wasn’t paying child support and needed to go to court. I was shocked. They said I was 7000 dollar behind. I went to court and paid for a lawyer to show the financial department in Berkeley county my pay check stubs proving not only that I was paying support but twice the amount that was modified. So they basically apologized and drop the debt to zero. They closed the Berkeley county account and said take it up with NY. I’ve called NY and spoke with Queens family court of Jamaica Avenue NY and got my pin number. NY told me they used the original court order from 2010 in stead of 2012 modification and basically disregarded the 7000 dollar debt I was never in to begin with. The worse part of this story is Tara Cooke hasn’t lived in NY since 2012. She received a settlement of 950 thousand dollars bought a house in Seminole Florida and Refuses to let me talk or see my daughter Arianna Sterling. I lost my job for about 1 month just to regroup and now have a new one making 15 bucks and hour. I’ve sent NY the information regarding the fraudulent clerical mistakes and the motion to stop support for a review. I had everything done by the book. It has been 2 months with no word. I have proof of both the modifications and the clerical errors that no one seems to be helping me with. I need Pinellas county Florida or Berkeley county to help evaluate this huge mistake that was made. My family has suffered enough. No one seem to care and it seems that I’m at my wits end. Many tears and hard work just to keep food on the table while Tara has lied and beat the system using false address and names. I will attach the documents of have showing the change and error that has occurred. Paystubs will show the decline in pay over 35% of my check was going to support. I also have her address plus deed in Seminole Florida. Please help. I thought Todd Burbine would have at least got something done but he did nothing. I need some kind of direction. If I don’t get this fixed NY will just start pulling 600 a month from my pay check again not knowing they are mistaken. You can fact check everything on Berkeley counties end and see the clear mistakes that were made. Even my lawyer could see the issues. So much that he couldn’t or wouldn’t continue with out another 2100 bucks. At this point I feel discouraged with our system and being a non-custodial parent who pays his child support and does the right thing……I feel so damaged and stuck in the figurative red tape of Hell. The support was only supposed to be 302 dollars a month and NY doubled the amount. They give me the run around and every document or motion I’ve sent, I get no reply. Even my lawyer at the time said that this was a very difficult case. They also took 2000 dollars out of every one of my federal tax checks when I had no arrearage at all.
