What are my options to make my child support payment effective?

A lot of people ask me what happens if one of the parents is not paying child support or is not paying the appropriate amount of child support that has been court-ordered by the court and there are several options that are available. The first one which is to try to resolve the issue out of court sending a letter to that other parent or the attorney for the other parent and trying to resolve the issue is certainly the best first attempt because it can save you fees and time going into court.

What if we can´t reach an amicable agreement?

If those efforts are unsuccessful then, of course, the other option is to file an application with the court to compel payment of child support. Once you have filed that application another thing that you can consider asking for is that the child support be paid through the probations department. Every county in the state of New Jersey has an individual probation department who is there specifically to handle the payment of support whether it is child support or alimony and to make sure that those payments are effectively coming to the parent who is receiving them because we do not want to allow a situation to continue where you are not receiving the appropriate amount of support for your children or for yourself for that matter. So, there are absolutely mechanisms that we can use in order to compel payment of support.
