We help you seek recovery of back-owed Miami child support

When it comes to the well-being of children and the success of their future, there isn't anything that will come between a Miami parent and their child's success. Success for a child can come in many forms, but one thing a child undoubtedly needs is financial support. This is a big reason why child support is court-ordered and enforced. If a parent has accrued back-owed child support, there may be ways to collect.

Since Florida child support is court-ordered, this means a parent has an obligation to pay their court-ordered amount. There are ways for a parent to petition the court for child support changes, however, this will not affect currently back-owed child support payments. A parent can always try approaching the owing parent for the money, but depending on the situation this isn't always advisable or effective. Legal recourse is sometimes the best option when it comes to a child's financial lifeline.

There may be many ways to collect back-owed child support payments through a court order. The court has flexibility on how to collect these child support payments. A parent who is owed late-child support payments can receive them through federal tax refunds, garnished wages or even other means to secure the payments their child is owed. There are severe penalties that are rarely imposed; the court will not typically levy these penalties unless it is in the best interests of the child to do so.

Bringing the child's best possible financial situation into reality can be difficult when parents are living in different households. Since the finances are usually no longer combined, it can be more complicated when deciding how to pay for a plethora of child-rearing expenses. Parents do the best they can when it comes to their children. When another parent drops the ball financially, it is very often in the child's best interest to fight for the child support payments they are entitled to.
