Beginning January 1, 2013 self-employed child support obligors who fail to pay support could be subject to additional requirements. If found guilty of contempt for non-payment of child support, the court can now order the self-employed obligor to seek employment and periodically report to the court, provide monthly income and expense statements, or report to the Department of Employment Security to find employment from which child support can be withheld. This addresses one of the major categories of obligors against whom child support enforcement remains a problem. See Public Act 97-1029 for more information.
