If your ex is not paying child support at all, then a Colorado Springs family law attorney will be able to file a Complaint for Contempt of Court. This may not be necessary if the nonpayment of child support is only temporary. Other enforcement actions may include wage and asset garnishment, lump sum payments and court-monitored child support payments. If the account falls into arrears, it should trigger the enforcement agency in your area to take action, but this may take awhile. Meanwhile, the non-paying parent may not be able to get a passport, and they may suffer from negative information on their credit report.
There are many things you can do about a parent who is not paying child support, but the most efficient way to handle it is by working with a Colorado Springs family law attorney.
