Child Support Enforcement Services in the Arlington and Mansfield Areas

What happens when you have a valid Texas child support order but your ex hasn't been following it? All parents have a legal and moral obligation to support their children, but sometimes they intentionally refuse to pay. It may be that your ex has lost a job or taken on some new financial responsibilities, but you can't be patient forever. You need those child support payments — and so do your kids.

At the Law Offices of Karen Cushman, P.C., in Arlington, Texas, we understand how frustrating it can be when your ex offers nothing but excuses for not paying court-ordered child support. We know that some non-paying parents really can't afford to pay, but we're well aware that others simply refuse to do so. Some withhold child support out of lingering anger or grudges; others use it as a lever to get their way in other areas, such as child custody.

Whatever the reason, attorney Karen Cushman has the experience and knowledge to effectively collect on Texas child support orders. Contact us today for a free 20-minute evaluation of your situation.

Child Support Collection Tactics That Work

Both Texas and the federal government take child support enforcement very seriously. As a result, there are a number of very effective tactics available. The first is arranging for the child support to be withheld from your ex's paycheck, just like taxes.

Income withholding is typically done through the Texas State Disbursement Unit, but there are other options if that's not getting results in your situation, such as:

  • Offset of Texas or federal tax refunds
  • Revocation of licenses, including driver's licenses, boating and other recreational licenses, along with professional and occupational licenses
  • Denial of a passport
  • Seizure of assets, such as bank accounts
  • Liens on retirement plans or other financial assets
  • Liens on real estate
