Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello. My name is***** will be happy to answer your question.
I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.
Please note, I cannot comment on your specific situation, as this services is only limited to general information and for any legal advice /legal service you should contact a local attorney.
What is the amount of the judgment for unpaid / delinquent child support?
Thank you for your follow up.
Does your friend have any assets at all?
Does your friend have a driver license or US passport?
Is there warrant for your friend's arrest based on his failure to pay court ordered child support?
Generally, if a person has unpaid child support in the amount of $2500 or more, his/her US Passport would be revoked / not renewed and also driver license would get suspended / revoked until the unpaid amount is paid off or payment arrangements are made.
Also, in many cases a bench warrant would be issued, so even if the bench warrant is issued in Florida, the person who has such outstanding bench warrant can be picked up and extradited to Florida from any US state and then will have to face the judge to explain as to why the child support is not being paid and might get incarcerated until the delinquent child support is paid off or some type of payment arrangement to pay off delinquent child support are made.
I wish you the best of luck!
