I got a letter in the mail today from a lawyer representing the D.O.R., which was basically a copy of a letter that they sent to dd's father. Basically it is just informing him (and me, as well) that a hearing will be held due to his failure to pay child support for most of this year. It says that I will request an income deduction order, establishment of arrears, a repayment plan for arrears that will "more equitably cause their liquidation in light of their amount and the time it would take to repay them", and any other relief that the court deems appropriate and just. It also says that if the court finds that he was able to pay and just didn't, he will be incarcerated. Has anyone gotten one of these? I'm sort of surprised...ok, really surprised. I didn't really think CSE would do anything, and I at least thought I would get warning. He did just start working and actually paid March's payment two weeks ago. This could be a good thing, though, right? Or can he do anything as far as custody goes even though it's a DOR hearing? Any thoughts, BTDT stories, or advice would be so great. Like, should I bring a contract from dd's child care and try to get some of that added to child support?
