Long Island Child Support Enforcement Attorney

Premier Family Law Attorneys Serving Long Island

When a New York divorce court judge orders your ex-spouse to pay child support to you every month, it might seem to you that all of your troubles are over. If your ex is stubborn and stops paying child support, despite the court’s order, they can cause a whole new world of problems for you. When asking politely for them to comply is not working, it is time to take legal action and speak to Hedayati Law Group P.C. about how to enforce child support orders.

Want to get started today? Use a free consultation to tell us the specifics of your case. We are available to clients in Melville, Manhattan, and Southampton.

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.
