    Claiming even one of the children is likely to change the support amount.

    FC 4007.5 applies to orders enforced by the local child support agencies (either now or in the past). The 90-day requirement applies to the length of time one is incarcerated (must be at least 90 days). 4007.5 took effect in July 2011 and generally does not apply to orders made prior to that date.

    The DA and the other attorneys are correct about the possible criminal charges you could face. Furthermore, your input to the DA is not likely to get the case dismissed – it may however help your husband in plea bargaining or in other ways. You should talk to an attorney as soon as you can.
