Working To Ensure That All Child Support Obligations Are Paid

Last updated on March 8, 2022

Child support payments are essential to the care of a couple’s children after a divorce. Health care, school, sports, clothing, extracurricular activities and many other considerations are largely funded with the money that comes from child support payments. When the payments are not made, it is only the children who suffer.

New York law is clear with regard to a parent’s child support obligations, and support order violations are dealt with decisively by the courts. Even if the parent who is obligated to pay restarts the monthly payments according to the child support order, the issue of the back payments still needs to be resolved. There are a number of different actions that can be taken to ensure that back child support is paid.

There are specific processes that need to be followed in order to collect back child support, and it is often helpful to have the assistance of an experienced child support enforcement lawyer who can help to ensure that your interests and the interests of your children are protected.
