My ex husband was ordered to pay my attorney fees. He was paying and has now stopped. He is now 60 days past due. How do I collect? Can I file a garnishment?

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . You may file a motion to enforce. The court can order him to commence payments to you again, and the court can reduce the amount owed to a judgment. Judgments accrue interest until they are paid in full, so it provides an incentive to your ex-husband to pay it off. Additionally, you may record a judgment and, if he doesn't pay, you may seek a garnishment.
