X and I have been going through child support enforcement for about 2 years now to deal with CS payments (this is one of those goverment agencies that i really feel blessed to have in my life!!). He used to just pay sporadically, but now hasn't paid for a really long time, and I just got a letter in the mail saying there will be a court hearing of me vs him for his non-payment. It says it is optional for me to go (I'm assuming the letter he received said it was mandatory for him to go). Anyone dealt with going to court for CSE? Is there any benefit to me going? Or should I just let the court handle it?
My worry is that if I am there, he will make a stink directly at me, because he just doesn't understand *why* he should have to pay child support at all, so I'm afraid to be embarrassed by him yelling at me in a court room about why he feels I'm not worthy of receiving child support. If it's not going to make me look bad to the court, i'd rather not be there!
