What If My Ex-Spouse Won't Pay Child Support?

According to state child support laws, both parents have a legal and financial obligation to support their children. If your ex-spouse is refusing to pay child support, you may be wondering how to find a Tampa divorce lawyer who can help you aggressively pursue the enforcement of your child support order. Catherine W. Real, P.A. is a former prosecuting attorney who, since 1981, has devoted her career to providing hard-hitting legal counsel to residents of Tampa and the surrounding areas. She is one of the first lawyers in the state to be certified by the Florida Supreme Court as a family law mediator and is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of divorce and family law.

When a parent depends on child support payments from their ex-spouse to provide for his or her child, any delay in payment or failure to pay can leave that parent struggling to try and make ends meet. Child support orders are legal contracts which can and will be enforced by the court. With help from her law firm, you may be able to get your ex-spouse held in contempt of court. You could also get a wage order issued so that his or her employer will be required to send a portion of your ex-spouse's wages directly to you. Individuals who refuse to pay child support can have their driver's license revoked until payments are made, they can have property seized and they could end up having their tax refund intercepted and redirected for child support.

If you need help getting your ex-spouse to make his or her court-ordered child support payments, Attorney Real will do all that she can to help you resolve the matter in a timely fashion. If this can be accomplished through mediation, she will work diligently to make that happen. If more aggressive tactics are required, her advocacy may be key in helping you seek the positive results you desire. To discuss your case with a family law attorney and learn more about the legal options you can use to recover child support payments, it is advised you call her law firm today.
