my ex went back to court yesterday for sentencing on contemp charges, starting from July 2006, when he finally showed up. Anyhoo, he has paid 700.00 every month since then, EXCEPT he has missed Nov. and April (2006,2007) had has paid zero towards the arrears which are ordered at $50 a month on a balance of almost 200,000 dollars. So he goes in today and hands over a cashiers check for $1000.00. The court is satisfied. I am not!!!! He is CO to pay $700 a month plus $50 on the arrears. His $1000.00 doesn't even cover the intrest on 2 months which has grown greater than his CS obligation. I think his monthly intrest is now around $750.00 a month

Your ex is a loser when it comes to supporting his child...no doubt. And I think it sucks for you since you have supported your DD alone all this time.

With that said, I am trying to figure out how they can keep adding $750.00 of interest EVERY month and EXPECT him to catch up? Apparently interest has been added on all these years, but I would think if he is NOW CO'ed to pay $700/month and $50 in arrears that they should let that be the amount with NO interest adding up continually UNLESS he is late.

So what is expected of him is that he pays $700/month CS, $50 in arrears and $750 in interest to stay above water? Can he truly afford $1500/month... Again I am not trying to okay anything he has done, I am just saying as a person looking in from the outside, as far as common sense goes?

I had no oppertuntity. To the other poster...yes to break even every month he should pay $1500 a month to stay current. Look at a mortage account. You might pay 6% on a balance. He is carring a balance of 200,000 a month and getting further and further behind even he does pay. I think his intrest rate is at 8%, but I forget. Don't get me wrong. I need the$1000.00 that he paid. But, if you defaulted on your mortage your bank won't forgive the interest or penelities and neither will CSE

Oh I don't think that the penalties should be forgiven, I'm just saying that he will be forever behind because they continue to accrue.

What I think sounds reasonable is BF owes $200,000 in arrears, I am assuming that includes penalties? He should be ordered to pay a certain amount on that each month until it is paid off ($50/month seems EXTREMELY low). But then NO more penalties should accrue unless he fails to pay on time.

On top of that regular CS should be paid on time, and penalties should accrue if BF is late.

Sadly he could have probably paid $100 and the Judge would have said he was making an attempt.

If the courts did more to get the NCP's to pay on time every month, many children wouldn't be on state assistance, and our taxes could either be cut or the money that would be spent on assistance could be usef for other things like teacher pay raises and the education systems.

>>>>>NO more penalties should accrue unless he fails to pay on time.

In cases of NCPs who willfully spent years dodging paying anything on CS, I'm all in favor of NO BREAKS. That means penalties, regardless of how on time they pay in the future. Someone gets themself into a situation, they need to figure out how to get themself out of it.

>>>>>Can he truly afford $1500/month...

Does it matter? Since she's not the one that kept him from paying the $700 every month for all those years, the extra $750/mo. is his own stupidity. If he couldn't afford it, wouldn't it have been best for him to have considered that BEFORE he made it to where he owes it?

No one get's 200k in CS debt without just flately refusing to pay it. Considering they live in CA that's probably not an outrageous amount of CS. Now Had he not be able to afford the amount set then he should have done something about it years ago rather than just not pay it.

Cassie, I'd agree with you if the man had been attempting to pay his CS all those years and just not making it. There was no attempt.
