Support Arrears

Rhonda Diane Ellifritz

Case Conclusion Date:December 28, 2012

Practice Area:Family

Outcome:County stipulated not to register support order and $700,000 arrears due, despite opposing party's protest.

Description:Client had a temporary order issued in another county in 2001 for support of $5,000 per month. Parties attempted to reconcile, but completed the divorce two years later. In 2012, opposing party attempted to register 2001 order. Client had lost his job during reconciliation and never paid more than $600 per month thereafter. With interest, arrears would have resulted in almost $700,000 in arrears. We filed a motion to quash.
