    What You Can Do When Your Ex Is Not Paying

    Unreasonable ex-spouses not paying child support despite a court order has been a problem for decades. To put matters to rest, the Child Support Enforcement Act was established in 1984, which created a particular set of rules you can follow to legally enforce the child support order. It begins with retaining an attorney who creates the proper paperwork to serve to your ex, demanding that they meet to make a payment plan, or there could be consequences.

    Legal consequences that can be imposed against a noncompliant ex include:

    • Wage garnishment
    • Property seizure
    • Federal tax refunds garnished or withheld
    • Revoked driver’s license
    • Invalidation of passport
    • Suspension of professional license

    Jail time can also be used to penalize an ex-spouse who has stopped making child support payments. This is generally the final choice as they may become entirely unable to provide child support in jail.
