San Diego Child Support Enforcement Lawyers

Even when a parent has been awarded child support payments, sometimes the other parent refuses to pay them in full or even at all. Although the payments are court-ordered and therefore legally-binding, these orders can be difficult to enforce. When parents refuse to make their child support payments, the custodial parent is forced to make tough sacrifices and a child may not be able to receive the medical care or educational opportunities he or she needs.

If your former spouse is delinquent in payment of court-ordered child support, the San Diego child support enforcement attorneys at Fischer & Van Thiel, LLP, may be able to help. Contact our offices today at (760) 757-6854 to discuss your situation with a qualified lawyer.

Missed Child Support Payments

A child support agreement is a court mandated judgment. Therefore, if a parent does not receive the child support payments owed, he or she may take legal action to ensure the agreement is enforced, including:

  • Wage garnishments and assignments
  • Writ of execution to seize the other parent’s property
  • Contempt of court decrees

Child support agreements often include stipulations other than just a lump sum of money each month. The non-custodial parent may also be required to maintain health and life insurance policies for the child, and pay portions of medical bills and educational, daycare, and travel costs. If the other parent of your child is missing child support payments or not paying the correct court-ordered amount, you may be able to take legal action to get the money you are owed for the care of your child.
