In the event a party fails to comply with an order of the court or the terms of a contract, the other party will have enforcement rights. In New York, rights and remedies for unpaid child support or spousal maintenance may be sought by filing a violation petition in court and seeking services from the Support Collection Unit.
A Nassau County divorce attorney at Jane K. Cristal, P.C. can review your facts and circumstances to determine the most effective way to seek enforcement. Call (800) 817-5029.
Sometimes the situation requires the enforcement agency to locate the party in neglect of payment; should this occur, the payee may need to provide information about the other party, including social security number, Department of Motor Vehicle records, work address of the non-custodial parents, information about the grandparents of the non-custodial parent, recent photographs, bank statements, and more. In the event a Court determines the party to be guilty of willful and intentional violation of child support payments, the party may be incarcerated for a period of no more than six months.
