After a divorce in Alabama, a woman was awarded custody of her children in addition to child support. When her ex stopped paying the ordered support shortly after their split, and several failed attempts to enforce the order, she turned to an Alabama child support lawyer at Alabama Divorce & Family Lawyers, LLC for help.

Attorney Richard Perry immediately got to work on behalf of the client and filed a petition for rule nisi, which is a contempt petition asking the court for past-due support, plus interest and all attorney fees and court costs.

After a contentious child support arrears hearing, the client was awarded a full award of child support and interest, attorney fees, and court costs. The court ordered the husband to pay a substantial lump sum of support within 90 days, and an income withholding order was served on the husband’s employer. The court also ordered the other party to pay our client’s attorney’s fees.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
