Sign up with Texas AG Child Support they will file for contempt since he owes you and has violated the support orders on copays .They do this for minimal fee like $25 or so cheap way to go get this money.You deserve it and he is in contempt and can be jailed and fined.

I appreciate the chance to help you tonight and wish you the best.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.
