Child Support Contempt Win by Jennelle Johnson

Ms. Johnson handles most of our cases defending those being prosecuted on a claim of not paying child support.  In this case, child had been placed in a guardianship.  Four years ago, the guardians obtain an order for child support against our client.  However, they didn't provide notice to our client.  After four years, the government began prosecution of our client for not paying the child support our client didn't know had been ordered.  Since the presumption in the legal system is that our client must have known of the order, Ms. Johnson had to challenge what is called the 'notice requirement'.  Ms. Johnson prevailed by convincing the judge that the prosecutor failed to show our client's knowledge of the order.
