Attorney assisting San Bernardino parents with child support arrears

Court Orders requiring the payment of child support are the same as any other mandate from a Judge. If a parent fails to meet their monthly obligations then they may face serious consequences. These consequences can include being held in Contempt of Court, incarceration, fines, and the payment of the other parent’s legal fees. The Judge may also order a wage garnishment in order to ensure that future payments are made in a timely manner. The process of dealing with arrears begins with the filing of a Motion along with a breakdown of the amount owed. It is then the non-paying parent’s burden to show either that the payments have been made or that there are other reasons why a finding of contempt should not be entered. Child support arrears can become a hotly contested issue and, if you are owed money, then it is suggested that you retain a lawyer experienced in such matters.
