My question involves child support in the State of: Michigan
My ex was recently found guilty of felony non-support in Michigan. He was prosecuted through the State Attorney General's office. Our children are grown. He worked under the table to avoid paying support for years. He does not even let our children know his real address. He keeps a post office box. He thought because our youngest is in the military, and he has a "new" family, he would be forgiven all arrears. Obviously that didn't happen. He was given a suspended sentence until December 2012. I live out of state (in California) and was unable to to attend the hearings. I know he entered into some sort of plea agreement. My question is basically what generally happens during his probation. Is he expected to make payments on his arrears? I found a website that confirmed he is a probationer, and gives six rather general conditions for his probation. There is nothing said about paying his arrears as a condition of his probation.
I know whatever information you might share would not be specific to my case, but any general information about what to expect when someone is on probation pending a suspended sentence for felony non-support in Michigan in would be greatly appreciated.
