My question involves child support in the State of: OH
Going to court in December for Motion to show Cause because Ex has not paid a dime of Court Ordered child support since the order was instated in September 2007. Ex is willfully unemployed, lives with parents, has no bills, no responsibility for anything. Ex's license has already been suspended due to non-payment.
When we go to court, will the Ex have to explain to the court why he hasn't followed the support order? I know all situations are different, but what powers does the judge have and what actions could be taken against the Ex?
There is no reason (physically, medically, etc) why the Ex can not work, just doesn't want to and feels that since his mommy/daddy buy the kiddo school clothes, that his obligations are filled.
Thank you in advance for any input!!
