Child Support Efforcement
Perhaps you were not married, but you and your partner have decided to split. How do you go about getting child support? Maybe your ex has decided he or she isn’t going to pay court-ordered child support anymore, leaving you with the uncertainty of how you’re going to be able to take care of your children.
Dale G. Westling, Sr., has been dealing with these types of issues for many years and has an array of experience and knowledge. From child support enforcement to initial claims and disputes, our office is ready to help.
If a party is found in contempt, he or she can be ordered pay a purge amount and/or be taken into custody. All other issues (i.e. property distribution, liability concerns, attorney fees, etc.) in a Final Judgment are an enforcement issues and not issues of contempt. A contempt and/or enforcement proceeding does not require service of process. In fact, a hearing can be scheduled and mailed with the Motion without coordination with the other party if he or she does not have an attorney on file.
Mr. Westling will also assist you in modifying or changing your current divorce Judgments.
