Contingency Fee Option

We handle many cases on a “contingency fee” basis, which means that we will not get paid for our services until we collect money on your behalf.  We will advance all the costs associated with ensuring you collect money that is owed under a child support or alimony order, which sometimes can be substantial.  Costs that are often involved include filing fees, investigator fees, discovery costs including deposition expenses, and so forth.

Collection Procedures

To collect on a past-due arrears amount owed under a divorce judgment, we often employ a variety of tactics to ensure payment.  Many times our office will file various motions including motions to determine arrears, contempt motions, and other pleadings with the court to begin the process of collection.  We also prepare writs of execution, various liens, and other statutorily authorized methods to collect.  It is important to provide our office with all the court orders applicable to the situation.  After the motions are filed, we find and serve the opposing party, begin attaching and levying property and do whatever it takes to achieve the goal of making the other side pay for what they owe under the terms of the divorce order or judgment.

Strategic Planning for Collection Success

Planning is a critical part of the collection process.  Often months of planning on our part takes place before we proceed with filing and serving the opposing side.  We have planned strategically to find people who have tried to hide from their support judgment and serve them with the appropriate court proceedings.  We have hired asset-investigation specialists to determine assets before taking any action.  We have filed actions in probate cases seeking to stop any trust distributions to people that owe child and spousal support.  Often, it takes careful planning, research and investigation before we take legal action.
