Getting Child Support Payments on Time
Posted on Jun 16, 2010 7:00pm PDT
If you are not receiving
child support payments on time in the state of Florida, know that you have legal options
at your disposal. One such option is known as an enforcement action. When
parents obtain enforcement actions, the court will file judgments against
non-paying parents. This may lead to individuals receiving liens against
their real property, like their homes.
According to the laws of Florida, all court orders must be followed, including
orders for child support payments. If parents are not receiving their
child support payments, they can contact the Florida Department of Revenue's
Child Support Enforcement service. By taking this step, parents may be
able to obtain an Income Deduction Order, which will allow for employer's
to deduct child support payments from non-paying parents' paychecks.
As you can see, when you are not receiving child support, you do have options.
The key to becoming aware of your options is consulting with a
Jacksonville family lawyer.
