Galveston County Child Support Enforcement

Problems obtaining child support?

Non-payment of child support is taken very seriously by the courts, in fact, failure to pay is considered contempt of court and could lead to a criminal record or even jail time. Many parents depend on child support to help provide the best for their children. Obviously, a better answer than seeing the child's other parent dealt with criminally, is to find a solution that ensures the other parent honors past-due payments and continues to provide the financial support your children deserve.

If you have custody of your children and the other parent is not making support payments, contacting a Galveston County divorce attorney as soon as possible is a very important first step toward securing the financial support you need to help care for your children.

A parent who does not pay child support can be subject to a number of enforcement measures designed to collect past-due payments as well as regular payments. Some of the measures used to collect child support may be:

  • Liens against personal property suck as vehicles, boats or property
  • Garnishing wages
  • Intercepting federal and state tax refunds
  • Seizure of financial accounts
  • Reporting unpaid amounts to credit agencies
  • Intercepting unemployment or workers' compensation benefits
