Wage Assignments

Riverside Child Custody & Support Attorney

California Family Code Section 5320 is vital in child support - it enforces child support to be paid through wage assignment. The wage assignment is enforceable on the employer. When an employer does not comply they may be subject to contempt.

When the non-custodial parent in a support case has an employer who refuses to comply, your lawyer should make the employer a party to the case by filing a joinder. In extreme cases, the employer may be held accountable for non-compliance by the courts and be found in contempt of court.

What happens if I miss child support payments?

Payment of child support is not an option. It includes divorcing couples, paternity action parties, and couples separated who did not live together. Often people question if the child support will have an impact on their visitation. It normally does not have an impact. Support however, is relative to the timeshare established.

In situations where the non-custodial parent is self employed or earns cash income, there are alternative remedies available such as tax refunds, liens on accounts and non-payment can be enforced by suspension of driving, and other means. Consult an experienced Riverside child custody lawyer at the Law Offices of Richard K. Isles to discuss the best method for collecting.
