When a parent fails to make child support payments, our firm can intervene on your behalf through enforcement of child support orders. If you have lost your job or your income has decreased, you need to obtain a court order to allow you to reduce your child support obligation. Conversely, if you are a custodial parent and the needs of your child have increased and the other parent has an increased ability to pay support, you have the right to seek an increase in child support payments.
You may also ask the court for contribution to day care, summer camp, private school tuition and extracurricular activities.
We handle enforcement and contempt cases involving parents who refuse to pay child support. We also handle cases where a parent is seeking an increase in child support.
