Be Proactive: Immediate Action Will Make it Easier to Collect
If your former partner has fallen behind on their support obligations, you need to be ready to take action. They have a legal duty to make their payments on time. Under Florida state law (Fla. Stat. § 61.30), parents are required to provide basic financial support for their children. This child support should be on a regular basis. Similarly, if your former spouse owes you alimony, they have a duty to make those payments without delay. If they fail to do so, they could potentially be held in contempt of court. The further a person falls behind, the more difficult it becomes to collect the overdue amount. Do not let violations linger: Get legal help sooner rather than later.
You Have Many Legal Tools Available
Overdue child support and overdue spousal support can be collected in a number of different ways. Which specific method should be used in your case depends on a number of different factors, including how much is due, your former partner’s payment history, and your former partner’s willingness to cooperate. In some cases, out-of-court remedies are the best place to start. You may be able to negotiate a workable settlement that will ensure that you recover the most money. In other cases, you may need to take your case to court. Through legal action, you may be able to collect on past due support through a wage garnishment, a bank lien, a property lien, or even by intercepting a tax return. Your Orlando family lawyer will help you weigh all of the available options and take the appropriate action to get the money you are owed.
