My kids are with a friend right now and we have joint custody. They took off with my kids to a different state and now filing saying I am $6000 behind. I don't work and I am a few weeks away from being done with nursing school. They are not even family and are supposed to give me my kids back after I have a house and on my feet. Well they got a huge amount of money now all of a sudden I am facing all this and they are turning my kids on me and reporting me to child support. I do not work and it seems like when I am getting closer to get my kids they do something. How do I make sure I stay out of jail while I work on finally getting my kids back with me
The best presentation you can make during a hearing on a show cause for not paying child support is to make some payments. The court wants to see that you are trying to meet that obligation. It seems like you may want to address custody of your children also.
