I had explained in my previous post that NCP owed a hefty sum in arrears because of never having paid support. The support order, just finalized by courts, is retroactive for two years back. The order was sent by the courts to Florida courts for enforcement only within the last few weeks.
My question is:
The NCP refused to send income information and so the courts based the support amount on the last known income. It is quite possible and likely that NCP doesn't make anywhere near what he did two years back. He was laid off at about the same time as the order becomes effective. It is also quite certain he found other employment shortly after. But probably not as good pay. Of course the NCP never communicated with the courts and tried to arrange something. Rather I guess he thought if he ignors it, it will go away.
SOOOOO...I figure the support order will need to be recalculated based on current income. But what about those arrears based on a higher income? Do you think the recalculation will be retroactive as well? Sort of a second chance to come clean?
Lets assume the improbable and say the NCP calls CSE with concern that he doesn't make the amount of money they are basing it on and wants it lowered, rather than ripping any CSE notice appart in a violent tantrum and screaming horrible threats towards me. Do they ask me if I agree with that or do they get nasty with him and tell him he should have cared two years ago.
I am only curious how this will work out. If they ask me to accept a lower payment, I will shrug and accept whatever so long as I am assured by CSE that it is justified.
And finally, how long do you think it will take before he gets a notice from CSE about collections? Is it weeks, months, a year? I would like an idea so I may prepared for whatever storm that follows.
