okay this might be long because i pretty much have to explain everything...
i have been fighting with my 2 year olds father about child support for the past 2 years. he never comes around and has only seen her 3 times in court and 1 time during an arguement outside of a store. i filed for child back in October of 2007. the master of child support only made him pay 219 a month and arearages of 21 dollars.. so total of 240 a month which i think this ridiculous because he has a lot of money! anyway, he had a contempt of court hearing back in august for not paying... failed to show up to that so they put a body attachment out for him. i went to his parents after court and told them EVERYTHING that they were in the dark about... the next day he he went and filed a protection order against me and said i was harassing him and his family! and whats even funnier is that the day after that! he went and paid 1000.00 in child support(the only money i ever seen from him). he never showed to the protection order hearing.. of course. he's good for not showing up to court. so i thought maybe this was a turn around i would start getting my monthly checks.. wrong. no check since august. so i called cse every week because i know they dont do anything unless you religiously call and harass them! lol. so i got a letter in the mail last week saying that he is being held in contempt of court again. which was kind of a surprise to me being that they told me they were going to send a letter that he had another 30 days to respond to. he is now back up to owing me 5000 dollars in arearages. not a lot being that he barely has to pay anything a month. but i guess my question is. are they going to keep doing this were he doesnt pay for months they told a hearing for him not paying and then he doesnt show up to court and a couple days later he pays 1000 dollars to keep himself out jail? if so is there a way that i can get them to make him pay more or do something more serious so im not going through this for the next 16 years? someone please help me because its driving me crazy!
