Little Rock Child Support Enforcement Actions: Helping Parents On Both Side Of The Dispute

Child support is intended to benefit the child. When payments are not made, it is the child who suffers. Thankfully, the law offers remedies to custodial parents who need to collect child support payments.

Two Decades Of Experience Handling All Types Of Scenarios

Family law attorney Vickie Lynn Cochran has over two decades of experience representing parents on both sides of child support enforcement actions.

Whether you are the custodial parent seeking help collecting the money you need to raise your child or the payer of child support accused of not making payments, the Law Office of Vickie Lynn Cochran can help.

Collecting Payment

A motion for contempt is an avenue lawyers seek when there's a nonpayment of support. A contempt citation is serious. A judge can order the nonpaying parent to pay child support or face penalties such as fines or even jail time.

Judges may also garnish the bank account of the nonpaying parent or issue a withholding order to take child support payments from the nonpaying parent's paychecks.

Helping Nonpaying Parents

In some instances, the nonpaying parent's failure to make child support payments is due to unforeseen factors such as the loss of a job or a drop in income.

In this instance, a modification of an original child support arrangement may be the best avenue so the payments reflect the current financial status.
