Have you gone through the divorce process and not receiving child support? Check out this article for guidance, then give our Rochester office a call to get started.
1. Receiving Payments
- You can collect child support payments directly from the other parent, or from the Child Support Enforcement Unit.
- When you are awarded child support, you can decide how you are paid.
2. Not Being Paid
- If a parent is not paying the ordered support, you can take them to court and have a judgment placed against them.
- The Child Support Enforcement Unit has the power suspend drivers licenses, and take income tax returns and even vehicles.
3. Changing a Support Obligation
- If your child has moved into your custody, you can request a change to child support.
- A child must be living on their own, and must not be in school to have a child support obligation eliminated.
