I am being pursued for a years old child support debt. My kids are grown and I had custody the last 10 years but there was a very old support from when my ex took them out of state and I had to fight for custody and visitation. Because of the court battles I was awarded several thousands in a judgment for contempt. His debt is larger than mine but I have to pay to pursue collections and all he has to do is make a phone call and they take my money. I want to request a hearing to have the debt of child support and the contempt of court judgments settled. He would still owe me over $10,000.00 after my $3,400.00 is deducted. I need the collections to stop and would like my fair share of the judgment. Can I do this with one hearing?
It may well be possible to accomplish what you are seeking in one hearing, however, without seeing the court orders, it is impossible to determine definitively.
You should seek a consultation with an experienced family law attorney. Many of us on AVVO provide free initial consultations.
