What Happens if Your Spouse Doesn’t Pay Child Support?
If you don’t pay your child support, your spouse can file a motion of contempt against you and the court can incarcerate you. If you see that you cannot afford to pay your child support, you need to file a motion of modification immediately with the court.
That requires a $175 filing fee and the court can modify the child support based upon a substantial change of circumstances. It can only be modified from the date you filed your modification. It cannot be retroactively modified.
