Greetings. Yes, the court may make you pay the two months you owe that day or go to jail. The court is not likely to make you pay the $8,000.00 that you are in arrears at the hearing.
Next, you need to do everything in your power to pay your child support. Child support is for your child, not your ex. Raising a child is expensive and you have to contribute what the court demands to the pot to help your child have everything he/she needs. Best of luck.
