Minneapolis Child Support Enforcement Lawyer

In certain instances, you may take more than just a phone call or two to ensure that you are receiving child support. Many parents who are unhappy with the current custody situation will refuse to make the child support payments decided on in a court of law. This could be out of anger, resentment or spite, or it could be because they simply do not have the money each month. Whatever the case, if you are not receiving child support payment in a timely manner, then you may need to seek legal support.

Child Support Enforcement

Failure to pay child support is only harming the child involved. The child support funding is used for the general well being, education and health of the child including food, vaccinations, clothing, class trips and functions, books and sports team fees. When these child support payments stop, often the one parent is left struggling to stay ahead without this much-needed additional income. In the end, it is most often the child that is punished and misses out.

Failure to Pay Child Support

In the state of Minnesota, there are a number of actions used to ensure that child support payments are made each month. Failure to pay child support may result in the following:

  • Taking Federal and State tax refunds
  • Putting a hold on bank accounts
  • Placing liens on property
  • Reporting the person to a debt collection agency
  • Charging interest on overdue payments

Additional Child Support Enforcement Actions Required

If these actions do not have the desired effect, additional steps will be taken, including:

  • Revoking a driver’s license
  • Revoking a passport
  • Revoking or suspending any occupational license
  • Placing the payer in prison through a court order

Child Support Modification

In some instances, failure to pay child support may be because the payer has come into financial hardship. He/she may have lost his/her job or succumb to an accident where it is impossible to work and pay for amount required. If this is the case, the court may need to re-examine the situation and modify the child support payment system.
