    The Office of the Attorney General will file an enforcement case for you for free. But due to the volume of cases, it will likely be several months until it is filed, and possible a year or longer until the case is finally heard in court. A private attorney will do the same for you, but will file your case right away and have it set on the first available date provided by the court. Fees vary, but if the other parent is held in contempt of court, your attorney will request the court to order...

    Attorney's fees are a debt to the community estate, meaning against both of you. Think of the other lawyer as a party to the case, so without the signature of that attorney on an agreed order, you will need to go to trial.

    If the withholding order is for current support only and does not include a payment toward the arrearages, you can file an enforcement and/or a confirmation action. That will establish the exact amount owed to you and set him up on a payment plan that is in addition to the amount of your current support. Stuart Brown sbrown@sbrownlaw.com

    The divorce would likely be filed in the county she moved to in California. Contact the court clerk in that county. Good luck!

    You state "I know for a fact that the children do not live with her." That will be the issue at trial because she will likely disagree with you. Make sure you have evidence other than what the children tell you, evidence such as a witness, school records with the other address, etc. When you feel that you can prove it, we can file for a modification of the support so the money actually goes to the children.

    You can file a petition for modification and draft an agreed modification order. There are, however, a lot of issues in a child custody and support modification, and having an attorney help you would be a very good idea. You might be surprised how low the fees can be for an agreed modification. Stuart Brown sbrown@sbrownlaw.com

    Since she filed in California, I assume she and the child still reside in there. You will need to get an attorney in California as that state likely has jurisdiction over your son. I wish you the best.

    Maximum guideline support is 14.75% of your net resources. If your net resources are more than $7,500 per month, then the maximum guideline support is usually capped at $1,106.25.
