Rapper Flavor Flav recently avoided being put in jail by an Albany court by finally paying $25,000 of the more than $111,000 in back child support he owes to the mother of his three children. Celebrities sometimes provide poor role models, making it more difficult to enforce child support laws. If your spouse refuses to pay child support, there are a variety of ways to have a support order enforced. New York State’s child support enforcement program has put in place aggressive administrative procedures that facilitate collecting from a delinquent non-custodial parent without the need to go back to court.
When all else fails, a court order may be sought to put your ex in jail — a method that is generally successful in facilitating payment as demonstrated in Flav’s case. The Law Offices of Randy S. Margulis has been very successful assisting clients in enforcing child support orders through all of the methods noted above and can find a prompt solution for you.
