I got a delinquent tax bill that my ex-wife and I owed to the state and choose to pay the bill in full to avoid future problems. Problem is, I did not speak with her about this and sent her a letter stating that i paid this tax bill in lieu of paying child support. Now she has filed contempt charges against me. If I show up to court with the past due amount in hand, can I still be held in contempt?
Child support is a payment made from one parent to another parent (usually from non-custodial to custodial), to help ensure the child's financial needs are met.
A child support order is a court order outlining the terms of child support, such as who pays, how much, & how often. Changing it requires going back to court.
