Thank you for contacting the JA expert team.
If the monies owed are for back child support, any tax refund that is due to her should automatically be paid to you. In addition, you can garnish her wages if she is an employee, for back support.
If the money owed is not for back support, please let me know as it may make a difference.
All the best to you in the coming new year!
Any tax refund should be automatically intercepted since you have an order in place. Your local court clerk likely can provide you with a garnishment form and provide information on how to garnish wages in your area. If not or she is out of state, you should obtain an attorney to represent you. A good place to begin is www.attorneylocate.com. If you genuinely cannot afford to hire an attorney, you can wait for the state child support enforcement office to attempt to collect (usually a considerable wait as they are usually understaffed), or contact a legal aid clinic in your area to assist you.
There are also child support collection agencies if you do a such online. I cannot recommend one over another as I do not have any personal experience with these agencies.
You have quite a few options. Good luck.
