This is a post-divorce child support case in which Michael Estes filed a petition to modify his child support obligation.

The court modified the child support obligation pursuant to a child support worksheet but held Michael Estes in civil contempt for failure to pay support prior to filing the petition for modification. Father appeals. The judgment of the trial court is affirmed in part and reversed in part.
