What does it mean when the attorney general's office says its going to intervene in an ongoing child support case due to non payment when the current amount past due is more than $5000 and the NCP keeps changing jobs and only pays occasionally and its not based on a true inability to pay (this is the only child, he makes $70k a year and only pays $500 a month). I realize I need to hire an attorney but that's not feasible right this second so I am still interested in what the attorney general does when they say they are going to intervene even if they need to go to court to resolve the non payment issue.
Basically, the attorney general's office handles these cases and will act somewhat like your attorney in this matter. If they've intervened, then you should call the intervening attorney and discuss the matter with that attorney. They are usually very open and happy to discuss the case with you and explain their role in the matter.
