What can I do if my child other parent refuses to pay court ordered child support?
The other parent will get a job for 1-3 months, quit, and work under the table (or not work at all). His excuse is always that he either cant make enough to support himself much less a child when I’m usually making less than he is. he will also state that I have angered him in some way and this is my punishment. I have sent proof of this to the case worker four years now and yet still nothing has been done. Is there something I can file to take him to court for refusing to pay child support like this?
Child support is an Order of the Court and if he refuses to pay your can file a Motion for Contempt Citation, which could result in jail if he has had the ability to pay you child support and he just refuses to. You can also reduce the amount of support that he owes to a Judgment against him and attached his back accounts, wages, real estate or other assets in order to get paid. I would advise you to speak with a family law attorney if you need help.
