  • If your ex-spouse is under a court order to pay support and those payments stop, you need to go to court right away.
  • Their defense may be that they are no longer employed, but that is not your problem at the moment.
  • You need to go to court and bring an enforcement petition to make sure you are taking every step you can to get your spouse to start paying again.
  • If that person quit his or her job in order to avoid paying, the court will find that out through testimony and documentation and the spouse generally will not be relieved from paying that obligation.
  • There are situations where orders can be modified or vacated, but the facts and circumstances behind those situations are so particular to each case.
