Enforcing Child Support
A family law attorney from Wallin & Klarich can help you enforce a child support order.
In order to ensure that the other parent pays the child support that is due to you and your child, you must first obtain a child support order. Child support matters can be extremely emotional and frustrating for both you and your child. You do not need to handle your child support matters alone. An experienced child support attorney at Wallin & Klarich will guide you through every step of the process, to ensure that you and your child receive the best possible outcome in your child support case.

Child Support Orders in California

The child support process in California can be both confusing and complex. The family law attorneys at Wallin & Klarich can assist you in obtaining a child support order. Our experienced child support attorneys can do the following to assist you in pursuing your child support matter against the other parent:

    1) File a child support case against the other parent;
    2) Establish a parental relationship between your child and the other parent by obtaining an order for a paternity test;
    3) Modify any existing child support order to reflect the other parent’s current income; AND
    4) Ensure that any existing child support orders are enforced.

While the Department of Child Support Services will do what they can to ensure that you and your child’s rights are protected, they often do not have sufficient time to dedicate to your case to ensure the best possible outcome. It is essential that you trust the experienced attorneys at Wallin & Klarich who will take the time to ensure that you obtain the best possible outcome in your child support matter.

Child Support Enforcement in California

If you have an order for child support, the division of child support enforcement at Wallin & Klarich can help you collect the child support that your child deserves. A Wallin & Klarich family law attorney can help you collect child support in any one of the following ways:

    1) By filing a petition with the court to enforce the order by:
      a) Obtaining a wage garnishment so that the child support payments come directly out of any income that the other parent receives;
      b) Obtaining a lien against the other parent’s property; AND
      c) Requiring the other parent to enroll your child in his or her health insurance plan. (Cal. Family Code § 3751).

The other parent’s failure to pay child support may also lead to criminal penalties against him or her if the court determines that he or she willfully failed to provide child support. (Cal Penal Code § 270). Our skilled child support attorneys will ensure that your child support orders are enforced and your child receives the child support that is legally due.
