I have a child support debt of 10,000. I pay my current child support via garnishment but none of the goes towards my debt (from when I was unemployed). Supposedly I was issued a court date, I never received the notice, and never went to court. As a result, law enforcement came to my job stating there is a warrant for my arrest. I spoke to the custodial parent and she agreed if I gave her $3500 right now, she would forgive the back debt. Is this possible, will the court order for my arrest be dropped? And if she received public assistance, is the money really do to her or the county in which she received assistance?
