If You Cannot Pay the Required Amount in Child Support, Could You Be Ordered to Find a New Job?

There are many things that a court takes into consideration when making this decisions. There are several factors that will come into play, such as the time you have had working in this field, your level of education, prior work history, etc. They may focus on your ability to pay. What you should be focusing on now, is the show cause.

In the case of Dennis v. Dennis, 110 Wis. 2d 442, 329 N.W.2d 272 (Ct. App. 1982), it was decided that the father paying child support was liable for finding work that would enable him to make the required payments. It was also decided that he was in contempt for failure to comply with orders to seek new employment.

Due to cases like these being so unique, the best possible thing is to seek representation from an experienced family law attorney prior to going to court.
