Can I drop Child Support even though he has arrears of 30,000 dollars? Does he have to be in court at the re-enforcement session so I can drop it?
Question Details: I had him in child support for the past 4 years and I have never seen a cent from him, I don't want to pursue this any longer since I feel that is not worth it, I am not sure if I am doing the right thing.
I very much doubt that a New Jersey Family Part judge will let you do this. The "attitude" of the law in New Jersey is that child support belongs to the child, and your right to give that up is going to be very limited. And I understand that you're tired of chasing him, but that's not the point.
There's nothing that says you have to go beyond the efforts the court and the probation department will make, with or without you, to get your money; if he isn't in jail for contempt by nonpayment, it's because he doesn't have any present income. At some point, you should start getting some money; if he ever pays federal income tax, any refund should be diverted to you, and so forth. Just leave it alone, go about your life, and be patient.
