He will be told to pay, or go to jail.

 They will make a new order, set up an arrears amount for the $3000 and add that to the order. He should have been informed with an amount that he needs to bring with him to court to keep his ass out of jail that day.

You have no legal right to demand anything. The judge will order him to pay a certain amount of arrears within a certain time frame or go to jail typically. Been there done that many times. There won't be much for you to do or say besides your presence will help in keeping him honest from saying he personally hands you money so he shouldn't be in arrears.

You can not demand anything. He will be allowed to tell them why he hasnt paid possibly ask for a reduction and told he needs to pay a certain amount by a certain time or get a warrant out or lose his license. If hes only stopped paying for 6 months out of 6 years they will prolly not throw him in jail this time.

You should be talking to your attorney, not the crazies on here. Every jurisdiction is different as is every situation. No one on here can tell you exactly what to expect nor can they advise you of your legal rights.

do you have proof he's working under the table? If so, take it. Chances are he'll get some kind of warning to pay up or go to jail. You can't really demand he pay, leave that up to the judge. Just remember that you're not the defendant & the judge is there to help your child.

They will probably drop a contempt charge on him, they can take his drivers license, and possibly jail time if the judge is a deadbeat hater.

But if he's working under the table, don't expect to see a dime. Even if you can prove he's under the table, they can't forcibly take shit from him. He has to be getting a check under his social for them to really enforce payment. But everytime he files taxes, you'll get whatever return he thought he was getting back. He won't be able to get a concealed carry permit, or a passport.
