You are supposed to do exactly what the court order says to do. Usually that would mean you continue paying your regular child support, and also pay the amount set forth by the court to purge your contempt. In your case that appears to be the additional $750.00. You should consult with an attorney and carefully review the court order. The consequences for failing to comply could be very serious.
