Over the last 2 years, I've been working for a company building a Retail Arbitrage division here in PA. I started it working out of my home and within the two years, built it up to a point where we had 10 employees, a warehouse / office, and generated 

You may or may not be aware that in the Bucks County Family "Justice" system, a judge can decide to bestow upon someone child support payments based on earning "potential" vs. actual income. 

A judge can also decide to put you in jail should you fall behind in one's child support payments. As "my" judge put it; Your landlord won't put you in jail, your insurance company won't put you in jail, etc... I however, WILL put you in jail should you end up in my court again. 

While "debtor's prison" has been outlawed ages ago, in this system, you're technically not going to jail for not paying a debt, you're going to jail for contempt. Failing to abide by a court order to pay child support. 

All that being said, if my children actually needed the support, I'd happily do everything I can to make sure that the support gets paid. However, in this case, the kids are very well cared for. Both my ex and her parents have far deeper pockets than I do and as such, don't need the money in order to take care of the kids. 

The child support payments, at this time are only serving to weigh me down, and make it more difficult for me to get on my feet.
