Okay, here is a copy of a lawsuit brought in Federal Court.

We are in the process of getting ready for one of our own.  We have a member who is challenging Child Support Recovery Unit on the guidelines and upon the completion of his case, we intend to file a class action if we are unsuccessful.

Why dont we file a class action suit against the state?  Exactly what rationale does the state give to prioritizing child support based on which child came first.  I think its ridiculous that I pay more in child support for one child than the state gives me a credit on for the other three children I have that live with me.  What do we need to do to get our own class action started?

Yes, it's case number CDDM042685 in Black Hawk County.  I took the stand and testified regarding violations occurring within the manner in which the child support guidelines are determined here in Iowa. Arguments were also made regarding how biological children similarly situated are being treated different.  It's a very complicated case and I expect an appeal from either side.
