I am a single Dad with only one job. Last week I was informed that I may be laid off by the end of this week. I have no idea if/when I would return. I am currently looking for positions elsewhere.
The court is witholding CS from my paycheck weekly. when I get my last paycheck that’s it. No more deducted CS from my pay. Even after one week i will be in arrears and my Ex will surely hold me in contempt (being the person that she is)
what is the procedure for filing for a temporary suspension of CS until I can get back to work again? I know that she will not voluntarily agree to this so the consent form will not work. Form numbers and procedure wopuold be a great help please.
We also have an ED order from the court where I am to pay XX amount to her for 24 months. I will also need to have that suspended as well. I was told by the judge that if I failed to make these payments they would reserve the right come and take my vehicle (which seems counter productive to me finding a job) or other personla property. the vehicle has a loan on it so what would they be able to do with a vehicle that I do not own outright? Seems stupid to me. At any rate do I file an article 56 or 57 motion for this? I was told that one of those is something like a “relief from judgement” request. As far as I can see that is the only recourse I have to keep from being held in contempt, losing my property, etc.
I am trying to do what the court has asked but being laid off I will only get unemployment which is less than 1/2 of my salary and will hardly even allow me to pay my household bills- mortgage, power, etc.
