I was granted a divorce almost 5 yrs. ago due to domestic violence. My exhusband refused to work until recently. We have 3 children, he is remarried with a child. He is $59K behind in support. I haved asked the court to remove alimony just so he would pay child support. It's about the kids not me. I received support through UIB for 2 yrs. It helped alot with the kids. Now, he's working and nothing..In the past, I've written to the courts so he won't get arrested (b/c he told the kids "mommy wants me to go to jail".).I am afraid he will not take care of his children financially just to spite me..what recourse do I have? Or, have I hurt myself because I told the courts I don't want him to get arrested? I have appeared with him at every hearing but now, I don't want toHow can I collect or how can the judge enforce the payment of arrears if my ex doesn't have any assets?
