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
