Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.

The only thing you can do is file a motion to hold the father in contempt of court for failing to make the payments. The judge can grant you a judgment of contempt and can also award you a judgment for the unpaid support, which you could then try to collect in PA. But, the first step is to see a local lawyer about filing a contempt action against the father for failing to pay the child support as ordered.
