Enforcement of Child Support
There is no reason not to pay your child support. Failure to pay any amount of child support when it is due can subject the obligor
(paying parenting) to jail through a contempt action. If the obligor is failing to make their payments on time and in full, you can
take legal action to hold them liable.
When child support payments are not made, there are many actions that a court can do. They can suspend the obligor’s license, deny passports, place liens on property, report it to the credit bureau, intercept lottery winnings and can obtain civil or criminal contempt.
Ultimately the goal is to have the obligor comply with the child support order. We will facilitate getting you payments through enforcement options allowed to us under the law. If you are an obligor who is the targe of an enforcement, we can help you through the steps to take to get in compliance and avoid penalties. We can even assist you in pursuing a modification if your circumstances have changed.
