Default Child Support, Disclosure of income, Small Claims Court

This is an up date:
Disclosure of Income: Handed in taxes and some bank statements no documentations as per the order. What is noticed is that the bank statements do not reflect the income that showed on the tax return. On one year there are deposits totaling over $200,000 and gross employment income shows $120,000.
Small Claims Court: Apparently he is no longer self employed and is working for some shady company. The company was sent a garnishment order for the money owing in small claims.
He did hire a lawyer but it seems the lawyer must of asked him for a large retainer fee so he is self representing himself.
Since we filed for child support almost two years ago he lost all his vehicles, he lost his home and he and his new wife are living in a trailer. This is a person that went from earning $200,000 a year and now is showing he is only earning $16.00 dollars an hour. He does not have the child anymore as 50/50 since he moved almost 2 hours away. Has yet to pay a dime. He has dragged this on for too long. I think he believes that he can show the courts that he is poor now. Well my understanding from my lawyer he will have to pay back child support for three years since we have asked him, the back Sec. 7 of expenses such as dentist, eyeglass and swimming lessons...
And since the child has been full time with Mom for almost a year he owes back child support on that also. It is costing money for the lawyers but someone needs to show these parents that you can't avoid or hide from your obligations.

Let that someone be somebody with lots of money. If you are not going to net a profit from pursuing this, then do not pursue it.

If his lifestyle has collapsed as much as you say it has, it is not impossible that his income has truly collapsed as well. You might not actually get any money out of this guy.
