Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
It generally means that the attorney for the CSS has let the case slip through the cracks and has failed to reschedule it. Your attorney could have checked the court calendar to find out if it was rescheduled and likely has done so, but if there is nothing in the court calendar records, then it is something that he would need to contact CSS to get them to deal with the matter. If there was an FTA issued, your attorney could find that easily in the court docket master system and if he is not finding that, then it is likely not issued.
Thank you for your reply.I am afraid that ignoring the matter is what will cause you the biggest issue here, so your attorney needs to get on top of this and work out a deal, because you cannot let them ignore it any longer and because you cannot deal with this yourself.
The court can only set a payment amount and make you pay it, because if you do not pay they will treat you like a criminal and will put you in jail. The doctor's testimony will not get you out of payments, only your attorney working on some amount you can afford based on your unemployment will be able to do that and the court will consider your earnings and inability to work as part of the benefit calculations and will also try to make you qualify yourself for SS Disability benefits, because if you can qualify for SSDI, then you can get dependent benefits for your child to help cover the child support payments.
