Did you know?
- If you have a court order or judgment, but are having trouble collecting on it, the court can assist in judgment enforcement.
- You can be found in contempt of court for denying the other parent his/her visitation rights.
- If you can no longer afford to pay child support or spousal support, you must seek a modification of the court order. Otherwise, back payments will continue to accrue and you could be found in contempt.
Myth: The custodial parent is denying my visitation rights so I don't have to pay child support. The noncustodial parent is failing to pay child support so I can deny visitation.
Fact: Only a court order can change child support, child custody, visitation, or other family court orders. Absent a court-ordered modification, the parties must have a valid written agreement filed with the court. If the other parent is failing to comply with the court order, you can seek court assistance for enforcement of the family court order.
