What If The Obligor Is Self-Employed Or Unemployed?
If a selfemployed or unemployed obligor does not voluntarily make support payments and there is no payor of income, OCSE will seek other legal remedies and determine which is most appropriate. Payments not made become arrearages and will be collected whenever possible.
