What Can Be Done?
An intentional violation of a court order, such as an order to pay child support, is considered contempt. We will file your petition and represent you at the contempt hearing. When the court finds the non-paying party in contempt, the door is open to a wide range of enforcement opportunities that can help you get the money you need to raise your child.
Jail Is a Motivator
You may think that there is no possible way that the other party can possibly come up with the money to pay the child support owed to you and your child. On the surface, it may seem that way, but there are always options. When someone is held in contempt, he or she can be incarcerated for not making an effort to pay child support. An individual can be held until he or she pays all or part of what is owed. We have seen many cases in which people have suddenly found the means to pay what they owe in order to get out from behind bars.
Of course, jail is not the only option. Wage garnishment and other less severe means may also make sense, depending on the situation.
