Hi! I'm Heather. I've been a practicing attorney for the last 15 years, and I'd be happy to assist you for informational and educational purposes.
That is a hard situation. Unfortunately, the child support collection agencies of the different states communicate with each other, and no matter what state you move to, as soon as you get a job, your name will come up in their database and they will start the garnishment of the new job in the new state through the new state's child support services office.
The only way I have seen someone get out of paying child support arrears, was actually indirectly, because they paid off their child support arrears with a credit card, which they discharged in bankruptcy about a year later.
Sorry you are in this situation.
