My question involves child support in the State of: Virginia
Got a warrant for me in another state, its been 2 years. Was for failing to pay child support. I lost my job. I've since got a new job. Since March of 08 i've been paying but am still behind. I dont want to turn myself in because i'll get locked up and lose my job and that will put be back at square one. Since march of 08 i've paid off $3000 of the money I owe. I still owe quite a bit around $13,000. But im doing good and i've been paying about $350-$400 a month. What do I do? I really want to get this taken care of but its not worth losing my job over. I mean paying off $3000 is good but im still far behind and if I turned myself in and told them that i've paid off $3000 but still owe $13,000 im pretty sure the Judge will lock me up because of the amount I still owe regardless of what i've been paying. I've been sending money every 2 weeks since March of 08 and have not skipped anytime in between. Its been there exactly every 2 weeks. Do I just keep avoiding the warrant till I get caught up more?
