Child Support Enforcement Attorneys In Denver
Top-rated Denver divorce attorneys, where clients matter most.
A child support order is a court order and will be enforced by a court. There are a number of different enforcement measures in Colorado to be taken in order to collect child support. A party can use Child Support Enforcement to recover child support. A party may also file a Verified Entry of Support with the court to show that the other party has not complied with the support order. The court will then file a Support Judgement that gives the power to garnish the opposing party’s wages and/or bank accounts. In addition, a party could file a Motion for Contempt with the court. The court will set up a contempt hearing to take evidence on payment or non-payment of child support.
How To Enforce Child Support Payments
The court has broad powers to impose penalties if a party is not paying child support. Parents who fail to pay child support may face penalties, such as:
- Income assignments against employment wages;
- Wage attachments on unemployment, workers compensation, and disability benefits;
- Suspension of driver’s license;
- Federal and State income tax refund deferment;
- Lottery winnings intercept;
- Contempt of court charges;
- Writ of garnishments;
- Liens on real and personal property;
- Denial of passport application;

Words From Our Clients
I appreciated that not only did Will know law like I know my colors, but he was a counselor as well and guided me through the process. I was nervous many times but was able to fully out my trust in what he was doing and I couldn't be happier. I will continue to refer people to him as o hear of those needing assistance.
Going through a challenging divorce is hell, your team had my back and represented me with a solid council. I have my daughters and got to stay in Colorado with them. I cannot thank you enough.
Keep doing what you doing; your firm rocks!
