A Better Approach to Family Law

Ohio Support Enforcement Attorneys

Working to Ensure Court Orders Are Followed

When you have reached an agreement in regard to child support and spousal support, and when the court signs off on the agreement, you then have a binding contract, and enforceable court order. Failure to honor the terms of the order may lead to a finding of contempt against the party who refuses to pay. At the law firm of Brinkman & Associates, our Ohio support enforcement lawyers have extensive experience pursuing actions for contempt. You can rely on us to stand up for your interests and keep you informed of the status of your case at all times.

Enforcing Child Support Payments

It is difficult to raise a child on your own. That is why financial support from the other parent can be crucial. When an order for support is not being followed, it is important to hold the other parent accountable. There are child support enforcement agencies run by the state that can help you pursue enforcement. However, they represent the state, not you personally. Our Ohio family law attorneys will put your interests at the forefront and will take a vested interest in your personal outcome. We can also take more steps than are allowed through an administrative process.

Enforcing Payments for Spousal Support

The refusal to pay spousal support, or alimony, can lead to contempt of court charges against the party who is not paying. This can result in jail time, wage garnishment, and the payment of attorney's fees and court costs. The child support enforcement agency also handles these matters, although they are less likely to get fully involved if there is no child support involved. That is why you need a dedicated Cincinnati lawyer from Brinkman & Associates on your side who knows how to get an order enforced.

I really appreciate the way Mrs. Brinkman handles difficult situations and difficult people.  She represents me with confidence, yet always makes sure that I know what is going on and that I fully understand my options.  Her paralegal Tamara, have also answered my questions promptly and professionally; and have helped me through some tough times.

Karen Brinkman was brilliant in court; I obtained full custody of my daughter and am extremely grateful.  She made my family, my witnesses, the other professionals, and myself very comfortable by constantly educating us and keeping us informed of the law and the legal procedures.  She deserves a lot of credit for her careful wording of motions and entries and her ability to take charge of out-of-control situations.

Karen and Tamara went into action on behalf of my son and granddaughter.  Their caring attitudes come through in everything they say and do.  I am sure that I will be looking to Brinkman & Associates for legal advice and for common sense answers whenever I have a family law question in the future.

I was very thankful that I had Mrs. Brinkman on my side when I went to court regarding a modification of child support that had been requested by my former husband in the Hamilton County, Ohio, Juvenile Court.  She returns my calls and responds to my emails promptly and thoroughly.
