I applied fro child support through the state of florida and i cannot talk to the state appointed counsel. I want to know if I need to go the day of the hearing?
A: If you do not attend the hearing, then you cannot be called as a witness, and that means there will be no one to testify against the other parent as to his behavior. So, yes, you must attend.
It took the state over 2 years to get to my request . I want to know what is it that I have to prove besides not having enough money enery month?
A: You must prove: (1) that there is an enforceable and valid judgment; (2) that the other parent knows of the judgment; and (3) that the other parent did not pay in accordance with the judgment (which incorporates the MSA).Prove all three elements and the court will enforce the nonpayment by contempt, which means fines and/or jail time, unless the other parent complies.
I also need to know what are the ramifications if this goes Bad for me even requesting this?
A: There are no negative ramifications, unless your original claim contains materially false statements (i.e., you lied on the request form). That would be perjury. But, you didn't lie, and even if you made a mistake, a mistake does not subject you to prosecution. Only an intentional false statement can get you into trouble.
