am having the same problem and that's the reason i won't go to child support enforcement, but let me explain you why... just recently got my divorce , filed while been pregnant and 10 months later and a lot of contempt orders got it, but the problem is, he quit his job only reason refused to pay ch.support, but my attorney and myself were able to prove he does get income from militARY PAYING HIM 3,000 A MONTH TO GO TO SCHOOL and 250 retired check. and more, so the judge ordered to pay child support while the divorce was finalizing and right after, well is been 4 months and nothing,no pay or him looking 4 jobs.
my attorney advised me no to go to child support enforcement yet, until he finds a job is he does n.t they won't do anything, his license is suspended due to his previous unpaid child support so now he wont look 4 a job well I can no longer afford her. 2 kids and me paying for everything is really hard but she was nice to advised me to take him to family court, because if a go with child support, that's it, i can't do anything myself or hired her again. to take him for contempt so now am filing myself the paperwork for family court and send him to jail and if does not pay he wont get out, it worked the first time when my attorney sent him to jail for medical bills. he paid and got out.
Please start your own thread if you have a legal question. You live in a different state from the OP, and things don't necessarily happen the same way.
