More details to this question:
I know the IRS will take theirs first. I've been in contact with the child support agency and they just say well he is paying now and it's hard when he lives in another state. So wondering what I can do about the past 6,000.

Your ex should be under a court order not just paying the current support amount due each month, but they should be under an order paying a set amount in the arrears as well each month. File a motion with the court if necessary, to ask for payment on the arrears.
