My divorce is more or less finalized, just waiting for the paperwork to be returned. In the decree my ex was ordered to pay child support for our two children.
Yes, and this is typically accomplished either through DCSE or your attorney.
This post is not intended to create an attorney-client relationship, nor should the information contained therein be considered as legal advice. Each case is unique, and posters should seek independent counsel to handle their legal problems. This post is merely intended to be educational in nature. I am not your attorney, nor do I agree to appear in court for you by posting this information.
A divorce case is not finalized until the final decree is signed by the judge. I will assume that the divorce decree calls for voluntary payments of support, instead of payments to DCSE or garnishment from your ex's wages. If payments are not made on time in the future, you can seek a rule to show cause and request garnishment of wages. Consult with your lawyer for more information.
