Yes, you do have options and do have a legal right to get the support which the children are legally entitled to. You can go to court yourself and speak with the clerk of court in the family division and ask for the forms to fill out and file, to hold him in contempt of court for failing to pay support, as ordered by the court. He will have to come before the Judge and explain this and the Judge can compel him to pay or sanction him or place him in jail. You can also reach out to the State for help and I have provided a link below, to see if they can assist in going after him and even garnishment of his wages.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
