The Process of Enforcing Child Support
There are multiple remedies included when you enact child support enforcement on a non-paying party. These remedies include the suspension of the accused’s driver’s license, the seizure of their state or federal income tax, or incarcerating them.
The process of getting the payment you need includes:
- Filing a petition to the court requesting enforcement measures
- The petition must insist to hold the non-paying individual in contempt of court
- Child support is usually enforced via state courts, but in some cases, it can be enforced federally
- Our Chicago family lawyers help expedite the case and collect money back from the non-paying party
