1. What was his income when he was accruing the debt?

If I understand it right, he was earning a living as a lawyer but not paying the amount ordered.

Then he lost his right to practice because of nonpayment, so his income stopped, so any debt (even $5) at THAT point would exceed his income. But what was his income and his ordered payment before they revoked his license for nonpayment?

I've done the friend's of the court thing, and having a court ordered payment that exceeds the person's income wasn't an option (except in impuded income caseswhen the parent was refusing to work, walked off the job, etc.). It was entirely possible for a parent to accrue an accumulated DEBT after months or years of nonpayment that exceeds their income of course, but that's a whole other issue that they bring on themselves.
