Regarding the Nov. 8 letter to the editor titled, “Child support payments: Look at Dad’s side of story”: Isn’t it the truth what this guy has to say. Yes, I have been divorced. Yes, I got stuck with all the attorneys fees and court costs. Yes, I did lose everything but the house as it was a rental, and I still had to pay my ex-wife $40,000 in cash to boot.
Did I have kids? Thank God, no! It has taken me almost ten years to rebuild my house of furniture and to be able to but a house. Then, as I was buying my house, I discovered that since the divorce my ex-wife now has a state tax lien against her and a civil lawsuit against her and all this comes up on my credit reports all because she still has my last name. So now I have to pay more fees to get these items removed from my credit reports.
Then, after the divorce, I wanted to get a new Social Security number and was told that this can’t be done, so where is justice? So, if she wants she could go out and get credit cards in my name as she has my Social Security number and it would be hard for me to find out until I am denied credit. I am entitled to a free credit report but hopefully this won’t happen to me in the future. I feel that the government needs to something to protect ex-husbands.
