Enforce Wisconsin Child Support Orders
Learn how to enforce child support orders when the other parent is not compliant
No matter what the circumstances are, the parent who owes child support should do everything in their power to pay what they owe or at minimum, be in touch with the other parent and the courts to explain why they haven't been paying. But a lack of payment and a lack of reason is likely to lead to arrest rather quickly.
The most common form of arrears collecting is in the form of wage garnishment. The court will determine what percentage of wages can be garnished based upon the amount owed in child support.
Intercepting Pension Payments
Under section 49.852 of Wisconsin Statutes the Department of Children and Families may direct the department of employee trust funds to intercept funds to fulfill a child support lien for the obligor.
Liens Against Property
Under Wisconsin Statue 49.854 the Department of Children and Families may enforce a legal lien against accounts at financial institutions, personal property, real estate, or against rights to property.
Suspend or Restrict License
Under Wisconsin Statue 49.857 the Department of Children and Families may restrict, deny renewal, and or suspend licensure of any license granted from the department of safety and professional services.

What our Clients are Saying
"Highly recommended. Divorce is hard enough and trying to do it on your own is even harder. The price was more than fair and the service was excellent. I worked with Attorney Holly Mullin. She was very professional, detailed, and personable. She did an amazing job. All I had to do was get her the information she needed and Attorney Mullin and her team took care of the rest. She was always available if I had questions and communicated openly with me and my spouse through every step of the process. I hope to never have to go through the divorce process again because its very unpleasant but having a good attorney like Holly made it so much easier. Thank you Holly!"Frederick T.
