Thanks for your question.

Is appropriate child support being paid now?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
no
Expert:  Debra replied 9 months ago.

There is no possibility that the Judge will sign the divorce judgment, even on consent.

The judge is prohibited from signing a divorce judgment unless the Judge is confident that appropriate child support is in place for the child.

Does that answer your question?
