Q: My kids father (2kids) is supposedly getting his lawsuit money this month(Oct). He was living here in NY but as of today (9-25-18) has left to Florida out the blues. He is on child support and owes money. Once he gets his lawsuit can I do something in order to get the money he owes and still has to pay even with him being in another state? And how?
A: If it’s a lawsuit within NY, then file to get a money judgment, and then (assuming arrears are significant enough to make it worth it), you could retain an attorney to intervene in the civil suit in order to get a lien on the proceeds. You’d otherwise need to use the judgment to collect it from his bank account. Call a bronx Child Support attorney for more info.
