My child support contempt hearing problem - UPDATE

So...first, I want to say thank you to all of you supportive ladies who not only gave me sympathy and encouragement, but suggestions to avoid having to take my kids with me to the contempt hearing for my ex not paying child support.

I took the suggestion that one of you made to see if I could appear telephonically. I filed the motion last Tuesday, and today I got the notice in the mail. The judge gave me permission to appear by phone! The time they gave me to call in is actually perfect, because I can put the kids in the pool, where they will be distracted by their fun and I can still stay close enough to keep an eye on them as I handle things on the phone.

So thank you all so much, for the suggestions, advice, support, everything! You have no idea how much it helped and how much it meant to me.

  • I am so glad that worked out so well for you! Now, you just have to deal with the court BS and not have to deal with trying to explain to your kids!

  • I had no idea that you could do that. ~Dardenella

    I knew it could be done, but I thought it was for cases when someone was in jail, or out of state or something like that. I wasn't sure they'd consider this a good enough reason. But I'm glad they did, because I really did not want to bring my kids with me, and I was having no luck finding someone who could help me out.
