Concering the question about my brother?
ok guys, i figured you guys would consider the worst of him. No he doesnt do drugs or drink. this is his only problem. you know its hard out here in the world to make a living and get by. yes hes remarried but is not taking care of other kids. and jobs have been tough to get where we are from but when he had a job, he did pay, and now he has a really good permanent job so that he can continue paying. and some additonal information for you, the ex wife ran off with the kids liek 15 yrs ago out of state, we dont get to see them often, and when we do its all about the money. so i thought i needed to clear these facts up for you guys so you could understand where imcoming from, dont always assume the worse.
Shelly these people on here dont care about anyone but them self, I didnt see you add this answer in rude *** hole category of the topic.. I think he has been doing what he felt was right, he did not pay that is something he is paying for now.. but I also think he should be sent home on house arrest to work and pay back what he is behind.. You have to add every detail to this place or people just assume you are a stupid.. I guess they dont look back and read your other questions, you also get people that are mad about life, people that have been screwed over by men, frumpy grumpy people that have nothing better to do then put others down.. You did get some good answers but as for the rest blah blah blah, I am sure they are not working on best answer for the day, they are looking at 2 pointes.. wtf ever... Good luck to you and My dad...
It is still his obligation to pay. You generally don't go directly from refusal to pay to jail time. There are usually actions taken that are much more moderate whether it has been a garnishment of wages that failed due to him not informing the courts of a change of job, there are sometimes collections, leans put against ones belongings even down to suspension of drivers license, refusal to renew tags and other penalties for refusal to pay.
Chances are that your brother has failed to abide by the terms of several other court orders in the past and at this point there are few other options than to make and example of him or teach him a harsh lesson. Fact is that he broke the law, and although his time is most likely not best spent in prison, chances are that the court system ran out of actions to make him pay.
Does the underlying truth have something to do with his disdain for his ex?
If your brother has a car
He should sell it give money to kids
\If he smokes quit give money to kids
If your brother has two pair of shoes sell one
If your brother has cable---TiVo---Satellite--a hobby
get the picture?
