Broward County Enforcement Of Child Support Lawyer
There is nothing more frustrating than having to seek child support payments from your former spouse or significant other who is not paying. You may be angry about it at this point or you may be cautious to cause unnecessary conflict, but ultimately it is necessary. Child support is your child’s right and is not optional. Furthermore, it is court-ordered once and part of a final divorce or paternity settlement. If you find yourself constantly asking for payments that are late or are not receiving any payments at all, enforcement is an option and child support can be retroactive.
As both a board-certified family law attorney with more than 35 years of experience and a mother of two, I know what it is like to be in your shoes. Furthermore, I can provide the child support solutions that you are looking for. Whether you are trying to seek child support enforcement or you are behind on payments and need legal representation, I can help you.
Seeking Enforcement Of A Child Support Order?
There are many legal steps that can be taken to enforce child support. I will of course avoid going to court in most cases by seeking to mediate first, as this can be less costly and time-consuming. However, if a case proves very difficult and the opposition is unreasonable, I also provide fierce counsel in court. In extreme cases, I can seek to hold your former spouse in contempt of court, fines and even jail time and attorney’s fees.
Needing Skilled Legal Counsel During A Difficult Child Support Scenario?
I understand that unexpected financial circumstances can arise. However, it is important that the court understands this as soon as possible. Do not wait if you are behind on child support payments. I can help you seek a child support modification if there has been a substantial change in your circumstances that merits a decrease in child support payments or a recalculation because of time sharing or involuntary financial circumstances. Every situation is different so it is best to consult with me about yours on an individual basis.
