If you are facing an enforcement action or are considering the option of filing one, our Family Law attorneys at Hanshaw Kennedy Hafen are here to help you navigate through the delicate situation.
If a parent is failing to pay for child support, pay for medical care, the law provides that the nonpaying parent could have those funds garnished from his or her pay; tax refunds could be withheld from the nonpaying parent to cover those payments in whole or in part; the court can put a lien against your property; you could lose professional licenses, drivers’ licenses, fishing licenses, etc.; and in addition, failure to pay child support could subject you to a finding of contempt of court including fines and even jail time.
We understand the challenging aspects of enforcement situations and have vast experience to ensure results regardless of what side of an enforcement action you might be on.
