What is the name of your state? Virginia
My question is how will my husband's chapter 13 plan be effected by a child support order? My husband just recieved a summons to appear before the court to determine a child support obligation amount. He has had custody of his 3 children since his divorce 10 years ago, 2 of them have since emancipated, the 15yr old- he gave cutody to her mother January of this year. A little over 2 years ago he filed CH 13 which includes the children as a part of our household. The standard Virginia child support calculator doesn't have a specific place for such things as a CH 13 plan. I'm trying to find out if the Juvenile and domestic courts will even recognize the existing court ordered garnishment/ch 13 plan as a debt and if it will jeoperdize our CH 13 plan.
