Department of Revenue Actions

Child Support Enforcement Actions

The state of Florida has aggressive, highly regulated policies when it comes to child support enforcement. The Florida Department of Revenue routinely brings actions against individuals for child support initiation and collection as well as paternity issues.

Some of the methods they use to enforce delinquent payments include:

  • Suspension of Florida driver’s license
  • Seizing tax refunds to handle overdue support payments
  • Seizing winnings, if over $600, of the Florida State Lottery
  • Seizing unemployment or worker’s comp funds to make support payments
  • Garnishment of wages or income deductions
  • Placing liens on the delinquent parent’s car, boat or other property
  • Making reports to credit agencies regarding past due support
  • Placing a hold on bank accounts and/or taking the money from bank accounts
  • Taking the case to court
  • Issuing an arrest warrant (a “writ”) on the delinquent parent

As you can see, the State of Florida and the Florida Department of Revenue are serious about enforcing child support agreements. The best way to avoid having the Department of Revenue take action against you is to make your child support payments as agreed. At Hutchinson Law, you will find Jacksonville family lawyers who are dedicated to using the laws of the state and their knowledge of family law matters to best protect their clients' rights.

Avoid Penalties by Modifying Your Support Order

Of course, it is possible that a modification of child support agreement may be needed, due to change in financial situation, employment, or other factors. You may be in need of more financial support for your child than the original agreement stipulated, or you may need to be defended against the other parent who may be attempting to get more support than is truly required. In either case, you definitely need the services of a skilled Jacksonville family lawyer to help prepare your case and protect you from an unfair or unjust situation. Call today to schedule an initial consultation.
