Hi - I live in So California. My exhusband has been "unemployed" since August 2007 - his 26 weeks unemployment benefits were done in March 2008, (they were garnished $81 per check to cover some of the $525 court ordered child support) He is $10,000 in arrears since our divorce in 2006 - so unemployment has been pretty much his only job in the last two years or so. He filed for modification due to unemployment (second time since 2006) and we had a hearing with our Judge in June. Judge did not modify our order, left it as is, but instead gave my ex a JOB SEEK ORDER. He told him that he better make it his full time job to find a full time job! He gave him a log that he must complete 2 job applications/interviews a day = 10 jobs a week minimum and continued our case until September 22nd. Well here it is August 26th - Ex still doesn't have a job - and has also filed for the extra 13 weeks extention of unemployment benefits that the federal government just passed. I hope this judge doesn't just keep continuing our case 3 months at a time, waiting for this loser to find a job! Note: he hasn't contacted our child in over 3 years,yet he lives in a brand new house (sole owner of the property is girlfriend). He has been "unemployed for 1 year 1 month, girlfriend is on disability from her job yet that house payment get's paid every month... what a surprise! Can anyone tell me...What can I expect when we return to court in a couple of weeks? He has never been a "minimum wage earner" and I have 14 years of W2's (when we were married to prove that).
