  • If you have a divorce judgement that obligates your ex-spouse to pay child support and they are not paying, you need to seek legal assistance.
  • You can seek that assistance through an enforcement petition in the family court in the county in which you reside, or you can also go back to the Supreme Court and file a motion for contempt or general enforcement to get that non-paying ex-spouse to pay.
  • In that situation the remedy will probably be payments through the support collection unit of the Department of Social Services or an income execution where the child support is taken directly from the ex-spouse’s pay and given to you directly by their employer.
  • This can be difficult if the person is self-employed; however, there are things that can be done to guarantee your payments.
