Q: Missed child support payment, and medical insurance not being paid

I have a court order in place for child support and medical insurance but the non custodial parent failed to pay child support in April and had failed to maintain medical insurance for 4yrs per the court order. He also has not paid child support for the last child since he was born 6yrs ago.
