What if My Spouse Refuses to Pay Child Support? What if My Spouse Filed a Petition to Modify His/Her Child Support Payments?
If you have already hired an attorney to represent you in your divorce action, the issue of child support would be resolved by the court or agreed to by the parties before the final judgment of divorce is rendered.
If you had not filed for divorce, but your spouse refuses to pay child support for you children, you can contact the attorney to discuss how to proceed in this matter, including filing a petition in family court of the county where you reside.
In the event you find yourself on the respondent’s side in the family court proceeding in which you spouse seeks modification of child support, you need to contact an attorney, who will provide you with guidance as to how to proceed in such case.
