How to Enforce a Child Support Award

Winning a child support order is only one half of the battle. Many people who owe child support do not pay it. At the Law Office of Jerome P. Ventura, we have over 25 years of experience helping our clients to collect their due arrears. Once a payment order is created, state agencies can then locate parents who owe payments to enforce those orders against them. Those refusing to pay can face a suspension of their professional or business license, or even having to serve jail time. If the amount owed reaches a certain level, the federal government may enforce payment using the Child Support Recovery Act.

Modifying Child Support Awards

If there are major circumstantial changes between the parties involved, it can be necessary to modify the child support order. This includes cases where one person earns more money or the child needs medical treatment. In cases where a parent loses a job, or the custodian parent increases their income, a person may petition for the amount to be reduced. In all cases, however, federal law prohibits the dismissal of any past due child support payments.
