JA: Has a court order been entered regarding any unpaid child support? When was the last payment made?
Customer: He pays ever month (garnish from paycheck), he was behind, they put in jail, so they garnished the full amount plus the 10.00 in back support

Hello and welcome. I am working on your answer and will be right back!

Expert:  Infolawyer replied 2 months ago.

Yes. You can file a motion for the back support. The court will consider and likely find him in contempt and issue a judgment in your favor.

Expert:  Infolawyer replied 2 months ago.

You should have a timeline of events, calculation of what is owing to help make the court's job easier.

If you use a lawyer, court may award legal fees too.

Kindly let me know if that is clear.
