From the OP:
And after so many erroneous audits, Campbell still doubts he owes that amount because for so many years he was paying for what court officials believed were two children.
A spokesperson for Friend of the Court tells 7 Action News that there is no clear reason other than human error to explain why multiple audits generated such varied amounts.
The case is also complicated by factors that include: appropriately detangling the surcharges; gaps in Campbell’s employment history; and payments for two children that were being made for many years.
Yo! Michigan! It ain’t that difficult. It’s called MATH.
Turns out, it’s not this guy’s fault that he kept paying because he was told by the court that it was what he owed in arrears. Considering the above proof of what mathmatical geniuses they are(n’t), it’s a no wonder.
Most likely, it was simply easier for them to go on collecting.
And if you’ve ever dealth with, “Friend of the Court” before, (at least in MI), you know that’s exactly what they are: A Friend of the Court.
