Let’s face it. Life doesn’t always go as planned. Your dreams of wedded bliss may have gone up in smoke when Prince Charming or Cinderella rode off into the sunset with someone else or decided family life was not all it was cracked up to be. You may be left raising the children on a very tight budget, especially if the other parent is not paying his or her court-ordered child support payments. As adults, we have to accept the consequences of our decisions, good or bad. But it certainly isn’t fair to make the children suffer, too. A parent’s refusal to consistently help support his or her children is not taken lightly by courts, but nothing will change if you don’t take a stand and bring the matter to a court’s attention. In California, you have options for pursuing the payment of court-ordered child support. The state offers services to California families through the California Department of Child Services. Another option is to use a private attorney who is experienced in family law and child support cases. An experienced family law attorney knows the tactics used by parents who refuse to pay child support, including changing jobs frequently, moving from state to state, working for cash and childish defiance of the court order. At the Law Offices of Judy L. Burger, we will persistently pursue the best outcome possible for you in collecting back child support. Judy L.
