I have a court ordered child support case in effect that is attached to our custody agreement. My ex came to me when he was laid off and asked if I could drop the child support case until he gets another job. We did not go back to court but we did both sign and have notarized a piece of paper at the Social Services office that the case was originally opened at. Did I close the child support case or just the Maryland enforcement of the child support? I just want to know if I can file for contempt of non payment because he has been working for over a year and will not pay any money saying that I dropped the case.
