As Soon As The Father Of My Children Is Notified About Enforcement, He Moves. How Will I Ever Be Able To Collect My Support?

Many custodial parents feel angry when, after the non­custodial parent is finally located and served notice of the enforcement action, he or she then moves on. Unquestionably, it is difficult to enforce child support payments when the non­custodial parent intentionally and continually moves to avoid paying. You may want to suggest that papers be served at the parent`s place of work, then try to keep track of the parent`s movements afterwards. Try to be an active participant in your case. Whenever you learn that the non­custodial parent has moved or has a new job, you should bring this information to the attention of your enforcement caseworker as soon as possible.
