Former Prosecutor and Compassionate, Dedicated Attorney Serving Leesburg, The Villages & All of Central Florida

Contempt of Court Attorney in Leesburg, FL

Holding Parents Responsible | Child Support Enforcement

Divorce and the separation of any long-term partnership are situations that are difficult in many ways. Besides the upheaval and change of a family’s situation, there are often emotional, financial, and physical stresses involved. There is often a long period of making sense of the changes until things start to feel normal again.

Leesburg divorce and child support attorney Jody L. Fisher works with your family during the divorce and child support processes, setting up agreements and a fair payment arrangement and making sure that it is followed.

If you are dealing with a partner who is in contempt of court, call the Law Office of Jody L. Fisher at (352) 503-4111.

Failing to Follow Court Orders

One unpleasant part of divorce that often makes the transition longer and harder is when a parent who has been ordered to pay child support doesn’t do it. Failing to obey the court’s orders has drastic negative effects on the children themselves, who not only have lost the security of having both parents but are now suffering from financial want.

Thankfully, there are a number of penalties for parents who refuse to support their children in the state of Florida. We work diligently with parents to ensure that divorce agreements and child support payments will be met. If they aren’t and arrears have accumulated, Attorney Fisher ensures that Child Support Enforcement is notified and takes immediate action.

Child Support Enforcement in Florida

The State of Florida has harsh punishments for parents who are behind on their past-due payments – also called “arrears” – and ensures that life will be difficult for those who attempt to disobey the court’s order to provide for their child. Child Support Enforcement will come after a delinquent parent, taking actions that include suspending or flagging their passport so international travel is impossible, suspending Florida driver licenses, freezing wages, and other ways to make certain that the parent pays.

Attorney Jody L. Fisher works with families to make the divorce process easier and less stressful for everyone. She emphasizes that following agreements and paying child support in a timely fashion avoids all of these difficult consequences and ensures that both parents are following the court’s orders. This guarantees that the child is receiving the financial support that he or she needs for a happy and healthy childhood.

Don’t let a “deadbeat” parent prevent your child from receiving the financial assistance he or she deserves. Leesburg child support attorney Jody L. Fisher is here to help. We strive to provide the aggressive yet compassionate representation you need.
