How are child support agreements enforced?
A child support agreement is an enforceable legal order. It carries with it the force of law, and the courts can make people comply with it. However, this is not an automatic process. If you are missing child support payments, you will need to petition the court to enforce them. This is where a lawyer can help.
A lawyer from Arenson Law Group, PC will be able to help you effectively petition the court to start enforcing your child support. There are several methods the court might use to acquire your necessary funds, including:
- Wage Garnishment: This method involves going directly to the employer of the person who is late in child support payments and having that employer send the money to you. Because this method is applied at the income source, it prevents the responsible party from spending their money on something else.
- Liens against property: A lien gives the court ownership of a part of a person’s property until the person pays what they owe in child support. In some cases, the court can force the sale of the property to get the payment that is owed.
- Income Tax Intercepts: The court can seize the paying person’s income tax refund and give it to you to cover your child support.
- Restrictions: The court can restrict the paying person’s license or passport until they pay their child support, limiting their mobility and preventing them from fleeing the country.
- Contempt of Court: In extreme situations, you can appeal to the court to hold the paying party in contempt of court, which can result in heavy fines or even jail time.
A child support lawyer from Arenson Law Group, PC can help you craft and present a convincing appeal to the court to ensure you get the child support payments you are owed, through whatever avenue works best.
