There are several ways that The Silverbach Group can assist you in collecting your child support payments. Here are a few examples of how we can help get you the money that is owed:
Q: How long does it take to collect on past-due child support?
A: Each case will vary, depending on the situation. There are a lot of options. You can settle out of court after an offer or compromise is made, they can make quick payments, or we can have the court (a judge) enforce what is due, quickly. We look at the best options on a case-by-case basis and act accordingly, doing what is best for the parent and child(ren).
Q: Can you collect on a past due amount of child support, if the children are grown and no longer living at home?
A: Yes, you may be able to! We recently collected $30,000 in back-dated child support payments. The whole process only took six weeks, and did not require a lengthy court appearance to settle the matter.
Q: What happens if I get a judgment for the child support, but my ex-husband can’t pay it all at once?
A: Payment arrangements can be made, with a court enforced payment due every month. If the children are young, and you need the money now, garnishing their wages may also be an option. You will need an attorney to handle this procedure.
Q: How much does it cost to begin the procedure for past-due child support?
A: In some situations, you may not have to pay lawyer fees up-front. The cost of each case varies based on the particulars of the case. In fact, some situations may allow for payment upon collection of past-due child support. Call today to find out what your options are. There are no obligations to speak to a lawyer about your situation, and you and your case will remain confidential.
