How Do the Courts Handle these Cases?

The courts will use a variety of methods to achieve compliance, particularly if your ex is not following through with agreed upon terms of child support or child custody. Every case will depend on the various circumstances involved, as well. They may choose to deduct wages or impose fines on someone who refuses to pay child support.

Enforcing court orders can be done in the following ways:

  • Garnishing the other person’s wages
  • Finding the other spouse in contempt of court
  • Deducting from the other’s tax refunds, income, or other earnings
  • Placing a hold on the other’s bank account
  • Putting a lien on the other’s property
  • Placing a license suspension on the other person

Furthermore, the courts may also choose to deny the other person the ability to see children, especially if they are not complying with visitation or other orders.
