I've been ordered to appear at a civil hearing for contempt of court for non-payment of child support. I have been sporadically employed over the course of the last few years through no fault of my own. I am currently employed and having my wages garnished to make child support payments, but due to the nature of my job, we're in an "off season" right now, where there isn't very much work to be done, thus I've not been able to make a full payment. But I am making payments nonetheless. I am currently just over $20,000 in arrears and this is the first time I've been summoned to court over this. What should I expect from this? Will I face jail time?I should probably also note that the job I currently have, I've only had for about 6 weeks now. I got it after they had started the paperwork for the contempt case, but before I actually myself found out about it. I have no idea if that makes any difference at all.
