My ex husband owes 73,500 in back child support, in Michigan. We had been divorced for 15 years and I never received any child support, until I had him charged with a felony. It was in 2004 that he entered into a plea agreement to pay $1,100 a month for 5 years. Well he started paying it faithfully only because he had spent 7 days in Wayne County Jail for this hearing. Now he has suddenly forgotten about those 7 days, and has started only paying $400 a month. Because the income withholding order is only set at $100 a week, because one of our daughters has turned 18 since that plea bargain. The income withholding order had been set at $200, and he would make up the difference every month. Slowly he stopped making the difference and only paying $800 a month.(the income withholding amount) Then when our daughter turned 18, and the income withholding order was changed to $100 a week($50 per child, and $50 in arrears) that is all he pays. Well I was told if he wasn't paying at least 70% of the plea bargain, that after 3 months to call his probabtion officer who is monitoring him. So now after 6 months of waiting, a felony bench warrant has been put back out for him on 11/01/06. He has yet to turn himself in, and he won't be pulled over because he doesn't have a drivers license. My questions are, what exactly does a felony bench warrant mean. And why did the agent on the case tell me I can call my ex's local police department and tell them there is a felony criminal living at such and such address. Why would I do that, and not them? Thank you for your time.
