My husband was notified of an appeal for child support increase. He was able to make it to the first hearing but lost his sales job because he needed to go to court. Due to the judge finding this out he moved the hearing out three months. The next hearing my husband was not notified properly as the attorney general office said they made and error and updated his address which has not changed in four years. Once rescheduled he was only give two weeks notice and was told to get a telephonic hearing he needed to request this two months in advance. He sent a letter to the court asking for leniency and a telephonic hearing which he confirmed the court received but was told it was up to the judge. We have not heard anything since. The relationship with the custodial parent is poor to say the least.
A default judgment, probably awarding the maximum support allowed by that state's law, will be entered against your husband. If he is making substantially less than that award would be based on, and the child is young, he would be far better off defending the claim and getting his documented proof of earning capacity before the court.
