Do NOT attempt self-help remedies. If your ex is not following the orders in any way, you should have clean hands and continue to follow the orders. You can be held in contempt as well if you fail to follow the orders because your ex is not following the orders. One example is that you should NOT withhold visitation just because your ex is not paying support; and you should NOT withhold support just because your ex is not allowing visitation. You have legal remedies and should speak to a family law attorney about them.
If you cannot make child support payments, contact an attorney about your options. It is best to do this when you still have options, before you have missed payments and before a motion to enforce is filed against you.
