Don't Risk Incarceration: Attend an "Ability to Pay Hearing"
Even though it is impossible for you to meet your financial obligations, this will not stop the probation department or your former spouse from enforcing your child support and alimony obligations. As a result, you may be incarcerated.
Don't risk the real possibility of incarceration. Take the first step in protecting yourself by asking the court for an "ability to pay hearing." During this hearing you will have the opportunity to present evidence and testimony proving you cannot pay support and that your failure to pay is not intentional.
If you are successful at this hearing, the court should stay enforcement of the order to pay support so that you are not incarcerated.
