8. On the other side of the issue...
is the dad I know in Michigan (I lived there for 5 years) who decided to quit his job and live with his parents, in order to avoid paying any child support whatsoever.

Your friend has a court-appointed advocate, who can mediate a deferred payment plan with the approval of a family court judge.

The state doesn't expect a dad who is trying his best to find work to face jail time for circumstances beyond his control.

I fear that your friend didn't give you the whole story.

Ask him if he has petitioned the court on "grounds to modify" his child support commitment?
