After your divorce is finalized, you may still find yourself involved in struggles with your ex-spouse. In particular, couples who have children may quarrel about child support and child support payments or the paying spouse might fall behind on payments. During this time, an experienced family lawyer can help you to enforce your child support order, including guiding you in any court actions needed on your part.
New Jersey Child Support Enforcement
In New Jersey, a child support order is a court order by which both parties are legally bound. When one party fails to fulfill their obligation under the order, you may need to seek legal counsel in order to obtain the child support that is owed to your children.
Enforcement of a child support order is the effort to make sure that child support and overdue payments are made by the defaulting parent. The family courts in New Jersey are generally willing to take strong measures to enforce child support payments. As a result, the defaulting parent may find that the courts have authorized the invasion of his or her financial asset or issued a bench warrant for his or her arrest and incarceration.
If you are owed child support, there are numerous options by which to enforce the payments, including:
- Interception of tax refunds
- Wage attachments
- Seizing property
- Suspending business licenses
- And more
