What does it mean to be in default of a child support order and what happens if I am in default?

Generally, being in default of a child support obligation means you haven't paid your child support. If the court determines that you had the ability to pay your child support but did not, the court can not only order you to pay that support but they can also impose other punishments which range from fines, paying the other party's attorney's fees, and even go so far as jail time.
