What are the next steps to take after sending in the documentation to dispute money wrongly taken for child support?

Q: Last month, I posted a question pertaining to a situation my mother was going through with her husband's child support issues. She had a joint account with over $4,000 in there, and the Bronx collection unit took $105,000 out of it. The thing is, her husband has never deposited money since the account's been open in 06. This was the same year they got married, and its purpose was to house the checks they received as wedding gifts. She's been using this as her primary account and forgot that it was a joint account. After the money was taken out Jan 29th, Her husband received a letter/package containing documents about his child support. It also contained the MISTAKE OF FACT AND/OR EXEMPT MONEY CLAIM FORM. She filled out section 2 of that form, along with her pay stubs and bank statements for the last 60 days. The letter/package was dated 1/24/18, and it forms said we she 15 days to dispute the money withdrawn out of her account. She overnight everything 2/6/18, but have not heard anything since then. She can't call the child support hotline and ask because they're only interested in her husband. What are the next steps we should take?

A: Unfortunately, they may take a few months to resolve the dispute. If they do not, then write a letter at the 90 day Mark & ask for either a determination or a fair hearing. If they still do not reply, file for an Article 78 proceeding. Call a Bronx Family Law attorney for more info.
