Carolyn Jessop Child Support Judgment
Today in San Angelo, Tx, Judge Barbara Walther heard Carolyn Jessop’s Motion to Enter Child Support Order. Recall that Natalie Malonis and Amy Hennington, on behalf of their clients Carolyn and Merril, reached an agreement in September on past child support and future child support that Merril would pay to Carolyn for their 8 children.
It seems that after the agreement was reached, Merril adopted the “answer them nothing” legal strategy and wouldnt allow his attorney to actually sign the agreed order. So Malonis had to file a motion and ask the court to have a hearing just to get the judge to sign the order (5 months after the fact).
Interestingly, Merril has not paid a dime of child support yet. Oops.
Looking at the order, Merril is already several payments behind on his child support from September 2009 through February 2010 — this order says that those amounts automatically become a judgment against Merril. Whatever retroactive child support Merril was supposed to be paying along the way, his failure to do so has now resulted in a judgment for the entire amount of back child support plus interest.
