How Child Support is Enforced?

If a noncustodial parent falls behind on child support payments, you do have options for enforcing it, but they must be carried out through the court. The court can use various methods to collect any back child support payments. These methods can include income withholding, wage garnishment, interception of tax refunds, liens or attachments to property. Additionally, a court can take punitive actions if these methods are unsuccessful which include license suspension, passport denial, and even possible jail time.

How Child Support is Determined in Ohio

When it comes to issues of child support, first and foremost, the child's best interest is taken into account. The courts care about ensuring that your child or children are well provided for, and will look over all of the necessary documentation to come to a conclusion. We can help to provide them with the appropriate evidence. Our child support attorneys in Mentor can help provide additional information about your specific case.

  • Each parent's income
  • Number of children
  • Custody arrangement
  • Each parent's tax filing status
  • Whether or not either parent is currently supporting a child from another relationship
