        The following illustrates the typical pattern of enforcement problems: The parent entitled to receive child support advises a county that the payment has not agency been received. The county enforcement unit then either notifies the parent in default of the amount owed, or just as often, takes immediate steps to collect the amounts owed and punish the default. These steps usually include:

        • Seeking an order of contempt in the court where the support order was issued
        • Getting any drivers license, professional license, or sporting license suspended through notice of default to the licensing agency
        • Seizing income tax returns
        • Attaching state lottery winnings
        • Recovering any cash bail that might have been posted for the party in default on any criminal offense

        These steps will certainly get the attention of the defaulting parent. Experienced Rochester child support enforcement attorney Michael D. Schmitt has represented many parents facing difficult problems and sanctions. He can help establish payment plans, lift license suspensions and cure contempt orders to keep a bad situation from getting worse.

        “Mike will end all your distrust and annoyance associated with legal proceedings. He handled my divorce and did an amazing job keeping it out of court and getting me what I wanted. He was there to talk to the whole time and made me feel he was on my side by his comments and advice. He is now representing my girlfriend for her custody battle and he was the only lawyer we would contact to handle the case. He is truly a good person which is hard to find with people associated with the law in this country. Thank you Mike for everything you have done for me and for everything you are doing for my girlfriend.”
