New Jersey Child Support Attorney Discusses Not Paying Court-Ordered Child Support
As an experienced New Jersey Child Support Attorney I am often asked about situations when a spouse is not paying their court-ordered child support. In New Jersey, if you are the parent who has to pay support and you fail to do so, several things will happen. Number one, you could be arrested. A warrant could be issued out of the family court, and you could be picked up on that warrant and held until you pay the child support that’s due, or at least a percentage of it. Your passport can be taken, or you will be unable to apply for a passport. Your driver’s license or any other professional license can be suspended. Child-support enforcement in New Jersey is taken very seriously, and the consequences of not paying support can be extremely detrimental.
