Child Support - How far past due?


Judge issued prospective child support order effective April 1, 2009 with payments to be made on the 1st of each month. Ex paid child support in May only. How far behind do payments need to be in order to issue a “show cause.” Is that the immediate next step? He’s been getting away with this over and over and over again, and I cannot afford to keep paying for everything on my own.


You may file a show cause at this point, and in my opinion you should do so right away as it will take some time before you can get a hearing date.
