I've done it a few times. I just go in, tell the judge he isn't paying, and then he has to explain why. If the judge believes it's a good enough reason, they won't do anything. If the judge thinks his reason isn't good enough, he can be put in jail, have his license suspended, be ordered to start paying on the arrearage, ordered to do a job search and provide proof of it. It usually doesn't take very long. I think, most of the time, I'm in and out of the courtroom in 15 minutes or less. I don't do it anymore though; it's just not worth it. My ex never changes, no matter what they do to him, so I just gave up.
