    Yes, that is what it means. Arrears means the unpaid money that’s late.

    Arrears is another word for "behind".

    If you fail to pay the child support as the Court orders you to, and fall behind, you are in arrears.

    Yes. He is in arrears by $1,300. Keep in mind that he may have lost his job.. he may not have the rent for his own place. Do this carefully, because while the courts want that support paid where it can be paid, they fully understand what the economy is doing, and you could look very bad if you don’t display you understand what is happening.

    I would really recommend you start looking for a job if you don’t have one.
