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.
