– from Larry J. in River Hills, WI
When my wife and I divorced, she was awarded custody and I was ordered to pay child support. During the divorce, I was laid off from my job and unable to gain employment. The divorce really devastated me, and I have been out of work for three years. I went to court a while back to show cause, and I was ordered to get a job and to begin paying arrearages. This has been nearly a year ago, and I have yet to find a job. I went to court again, and the court stated a felony has been committed and set a date for trial. Can I be convicted of a felony just for failure to pay?
