My question involves child support in the State of: Arizona.
Well, my situation is this. My ex wife is in arrears in the amount of $11,300.00 and she is now six months behind on her monthly payment of 723.00. I was told personally by her that she does not want to go out and get another job because the support order will take half of her checks?? Now, she is filing to get the support amount modified.
What do I need to do to get her in front of the judge again for contempt? I keep going back to the DCSE, but they seem to be dragging their feet on this. Like I said before she has not paid now in six months, she is in arrears, and she has told me personally she is not going to get another job yet she has a house and a car all with no money coming in (most likely working under the table) and she is doing this in a very expensive part of a certain city.
One more thing also, she has continued to recieve her stimulus checks in the past and most likely any returns...I have not recieved one intercepted tax return or stimulus check.
What is the outcome of this going to be here in Arizona? This is for three kids that she barely even sees as it is which she has been recieving visitation credit for with her support payments from the start and now she wants to try and modify that? How? Can she also be convicted of perjury if she tells the judge "she can't find a job"?? She is healthy and very capable of attaining gainful employment.
What needs to be done to have the judge get her in the court and hold her accountable for her actions? Will she lose her license if she is not in the same state anymore? Is there a possibility of her being arrested for being in contempt until the arrears are satisfied?
Thank you for your generous time to anyone that answers these questions for me.
