Yes you may be terminated for cause for being away from your job too often.


Agreed. But let me jump ahead a little. You listed "Child Support" as your question area. If you're hoping to get canned because you have to show to court (and use that as an excuse to get out of child support) - keep dreaming. Others have tried and failed with that line for years, almost never works.


Yes you have to be careful voluntary conduct causing a loss of job may result in child support
being due even if you have no income.
