What is the name of your state? California
My husband is the custodial parent of his daughter. Today there was a contempt hearing for the bio mom not paying child support. She is $11,000+ in arrears but this is her first contempt hearing because DCSS had a hard time serving her with the OSC.
In court she insisted that a judge in the county she lives in said my husband cant sue her for child support. The judge ordered her to go over to DCSS and talk to the case worker and then come back.
My husband had something to ask her (he needs her to sign a passport application) so he went and waited out side DCSS. She never came out so he went up there, they said she had never been there. He then walked back to the court house to see if they went back to see the judge. The courtroom was closed and the clerk said that usually means they are done for the day.
Any idea what the status of the case might be? She showed up so the did not issue a FTA warrent, but she did not follow the judges instructions, does my DH just have to wait and see if she pays and if she does not, then ask DCSS to file more contempt charges? He is just not sure where to go next since DCSS is handling it. (but they suck!)
