When a divorce agreement is finalized and one parent is ordered to pay support obligations, he or she is expected to uphold his or her part of the agreement. If you are owed child support and the payer has not paid arrearages, you can take legal action.
At The Law Offices of Burch, Coulston & Shepard, LLP, we represent individuals throughout Orange County and California. Our firm focuses exclusively on family law, and we are led by three attorneys who are all Certified Family Law Specialists. Our Newport Beach family lawyers offer highly personalized attention and have a proven reputation throughout for providing quality legal counsel for clients.
If a payor has not been paying child support payments, a lawyer at our firm can assist you in filing a judgment against him or her. A judgment (the threat of legal punishment) will likely motivate the payer to become current with support payments by paying arrearages. If a judgment does not motivate the payer, we will pursue other more aggressive actions.
Our Orange County family law attorneys are proactive in seeking solutions for legal issues and strive to take the most direct approach. Our lawyers are experienced at handling all types of situations involving child support, support enforcements, modifications of child support and more. We will provide practical advice and do what is necessary to protect your rights.
