Myself along with Child Support Enforcement initiated child support in May 2017. The case was always continued by his attorney up until Dec 2017 when the judge ordered him to pay a certain amount and closed the case on that day. It is Feb 2018 and I have yet to receive any payments. And yes CSE has contacted CSE attorney and his attorney but to no avail. Your expertise would be greatly appreciated.
S/N: My child's dad is since purchased 2 new vehicles after child support was first initiated and other expensive items and continues to live a care free live without paying child support.
No, there are no claims for stress, pain and suffering. If he is failing to comply with the CS order, the recourse is to file a motion for contempt and an order to show cause. It does take a while to get payments set up through centralized collections.
