How IN Child Support Obligations are Enforced

Jun 21, 2022

Welcome to the Law Office of Stanley E. Robison, Jr, your trusted legal partner in Indiana when it comes to child support matters. In this comprehensive guide, we will discuss how child support obligations are enforced in IN and the legal procedures and remedies available to ensure the payment of child support.

Understanding Child Support Obligations

Child support is a legal obligation that a non-custodial parent bears to financially support their child. In Indiana, child support is typically determined as a percentage of the non-custodial parent's income, taking into consideration various factors such as the number of children, existing child support orders, healthcare expenses, and other relevant costs.

Non-payment of child support can have significant consequences for both the custodial parent and the child. However, the state of Indiana has established a robust legal framework to ensure the enforcement of child support obligations.

Legal Procedures for Enforcing Child Support in Indiana

When a non-custodial parent fails to meet their child support obligations in Indiana, the custodial parent has several legal remedies at their disposal to enforce the payment. It is important to note that seeking professional legal assistance from an experienced attorney, such as the Law Office of Stanley E. Robison, Jr, can greatly increase the chances of successful enforcement.

Income Withholding Orders

An income withholding order is a legal mechanism that allows child support payments to be deducted directly from the non-custodial parent's income. This process involves working with the non-custodial parent's employer or other sources of income to ensure regular and timely payment of child support.

At the Law Office of Stanley E. Robison, Jr, we have extensive expertise in obtaining income withholding orders to ensure that child support obligations are met consistently and effectively.

License Suspension

If a non-custodial parent repeatedly fails to make child support payments or falls significantly behind, their professional or recreational licenses may be suspended. This includes driver's licenses, professional licenses, occupational licenses, and more. License suspension can be a powerful tool in compelling compliance with child support obligations.

Contempt of Court

When a non-custodial parent willfully and intentionally refuses to pay child support, they can be held in contempt of court. This legal action can result in fines, penalties, and even imprisonment. The Law Office of Stanley E. Robison, Jr can help ensure that the non-paying parent faces the appropriate consequences for their actions.

Income Tax Refund Interception

Another enforcement tool available in Indiana is intercepting the non-custodial parent's income tax refunds. This means that any refund owed to the non-paying parent can be redirected towards fulfilling their child support obligations.
