If your court decision doesn't address child support but does indicate that the child lives predominately with you, you should contact the Department of Revenue, Child Support Enforcement office in the county where he resides and open a child support action with them. Even if it is addressed, if he's not paying, then they could assist you. Their services are free to the custodial parent. However, they are also very slow due to being very overloaded. If you would like quicker results, then you should consider retaining private counsel experienced in these matters.
My office offers free initial telephone consultations if you would like to discuss this matter in more detail, as well as explore the potential rights and options available. If you would like to coordinate a free initial telephone consultation, please contact my office at 407-971-6140 or 352-324-2444 to schedule same.
