Court Orders to Enforce Child Support
If you have reached a point where your ex is held in contempt of court for not paying child support, there are legal options to make obtaining payments easier. The judge for your case can choose from several remedies to help you collect overdue “back” child support payments and future child support.
A judge can set the following in motion:
- Payment plans for your ex-spouse to follow
- Establish an automatic withdrawal from your ex’s account to yours
- Withhold wages from a delinquent’s paycheck
- Intercept federal or state tax refunds (where more than $500 is owed)
- Garnish wages from more than $600 or 4 months is owed
- Freeze home equity lines
- Intercept worker’s compensation payments
- Incarcerate a delinquent parent until overdue child support is paid
There are numerous ways to enforce child support and take legal action so that you do not have to “chase” your payments each month. Don’t try to collect on your own, let the courts help you.
