Divorces that involve children have many more complex issues than cases that do not. It is natural for parents to first become concerned with child custody issues, but child support is another contentious issue that must be addressed. Divorce is already an expensive process which is made even more costly when one spouse learns they will have to pay child support. Some people may want to avoid paying child support so much that they take drastic measures such as quitting their job. In these cases, their former spouse is typically left wondering if that is even allowed.
While no one can force someone to go to work every day, there are measures you can take if your former spouse is refusing to pay child support. A Lombard family lawyer can help ensure you receive the payments you are owed.
