INDIANAPOLIS – A father who paid child support for the past 17 years reached out to Call 6 Investigates after he was told he must repay the money.
Jeremy Martin from Indianapolis said despite paying thousands in child support for his 17-year-old son who lives in Texas, he was informed by state officials that he owed money.
Martin said the state of Texas took his tax refund check and said he owed $34,000. He said he believed the notice was a mistake as the State of Indiana informed him in March that he overpaid his child support and refunded him $1,200.
"I promise I do not owe. I promise,” said Martin. “Fatherhood is the coolest thing. It's the one time in life, any mistake you made in your life, I can make sure my kids don't make that mistake.”
On his own, Martin attempted to get the state of Texas to correct their mistake, but he had no luck until he spoke with Call 6 Investigators where the Child Support Bureau became of assistance.
