Suffolk County Child Support Attorney: Enforcement

Child Support Enforcement in NY

Child support is an absolutely essential element when raising a child after a divorce.

Raising a child requires a considerable amount of money for:

  • Clothing
  • Food
  • Housing
  • And educational costs

After a divorce, the parent who receives physical custody of the child must take on the full responsibility for raising the child. Stay at home parents may not have the financial resources to afford to care for their child without the financial assistance of child support.

For whatever reason, if your former spouse refuses or neglects to pay the court ordered amount to help support your child it is very important that you speak with a Suffolk County divorce attorney about taking legal action to enforce child support.

The Consequences of Failing to Pay Child Support in Suffolk County

Failure to pay child support is a punishable offense. An individual can take a number of actions against a former spouse or partner in order to secure child support payments.

If the paternity of your child is in question, it is important to establish the legal fatherhood of the child. Establishing paternity or legal fatherhood unquestionably ties the child's father to making child support payments.

In order to enforce child support payments, legal action can be taken to:

  • Garnish an individual's wages
  • Offset the individual's income tax refund
  • Seize assets
  • Place liens on property
  • And suspend an individual's driving privileges or professional licenses

If the individual still does not pay the required amount, actions can be taken to imprison them for up to six months.
