My son will be 15 in a couple of weeks and I am owed $19,687.30 in arrears. 

Just a fun question for you people out there who like to figure odds and probabilities.  Which has a better chance, winning a JP or a non custodial parent suddenly coughing up thousands in arrears?

    You'll be lucky if you get either one.

        depends, is the non custodial parent gainfully employed? Your chances of squeezing blood out of a turnip are zilch.

          as far as I know he is employed, he has been sending about $200/month regularly.  But not $20K at once employed, no

            I'd need more data.

            Does the other party have a stable job/career with above average income?

            Some states revoke driver's licenses until the problem is rectified, like payment arrangements that satisfy the court's rulings on such matters.

              I am not sure but surely not above average, not at $200/month court order. 

               

              Doesn't drive. 

               

              He does have the regular child support automatically drafted from his paycheck by the state of Texas. 

               

              Honestly I think it's a draw because he would have to have a sudden windfall to be able to pay that kind of arrears all at once.

                He must be flippin' burgers if all they garnish is $200 a month.

                  Maybe he will win the jackpot and the lottery will withhold the amount he owes from his payout.  You would then receive all your back child support plus you could have it increased.

                      Here in NC Ive known some guys to have their entire tax refund go to the mothers of their kids when in the red on child support, so you may just get a chunk there in the next few months whenever he decides to file
