– from Lisa Y. in Delafield, WI
My husband and I were divorced about a year ago. I was awarded a cash settlement when our estate was divided, which I received. I was also awarded custody of our daughter. He was ordered to pay child support, but he has only paid about half of the monthly ordered amount. He makes good money. I'm not aware of any reason he could possibly have to not pay the full amount each and every month. I'm thinking about taking him back to court over this. Can he be found to be in contempt for his refusal to pay the full amount? Could he receive time in jail?
