We have handled cases with high income, with a party that is self-employed, and cases where there is proof of income required to ensure no income is being withheld or unemployment is a choice.

What if my child support payments are not made?

In some instances, a parent who is ordered to  pay child support may hide income or remain underemployed by choice. If this is your situation, contact Melissa right away to have your support case re-examined.
