ANY legislation that permits DSS/DCSE to manufacture a child support order (Administratively) WITHOUT JUDICIAL OVERSIGHT OR REVIEW on someone NOT EVEN IN OUR STATE - violates not only the SEPERATION OF POWERS doctrine - but invites MORE harrassment of innocent citizens by the DCSE Nazi "public servants"...REPEAL HB1382 - it violates the Constitution of Virginia
