What happens if I don't submit the Income statement for Child support review? 1 Answers as of May 26, 2011What would happen if I don't submit the Income statement for an Child support review order in Alabama? I have a increased income from working overseas and wonder if they will try to increase the amount of child support I am paying.

You would be at risk of being held in contempt of court. Generally the child support guidelines are used by everyone in the state. If your income is increased, and there is a pending motion to modify the support amount, then you are subject to having the amount increased. If you could show the increase was temporary, then you may be able to argue that the whole amount should not be used.
