What To Do When A Spouse Fails To Make Support Payments

When your former spouse falls behind on child support or spousal support payments, or a party fails to follow a court order or agreement, you may need assistance from a knowledgeable attorney who can help enforce that agreement or order. At the Rockville-based Law Offices of Susan J. Rubin, LLC, I work with clients to hold delinquent parents accountable.

Enforcing Child Support Orders

When a parent fails to make his or her payments, there are various methods the state and custodial parent can employ to ensure payments are made.

The following are a few of the means and enforcement tools used to recoup child support payments in Maryland:

  • Income tax refund offsets
  • Driver's license suspension
  • Professional license suspension
  • Wage withholding orders
  • Civil contempt
