How do I collect back child support in Ohio?

by Michael Muegel
(Middletown,Ohio)

I filed for divorce several years ago, and my ex wife never showed up for any of the court dates. I then received full custody and child support. My ex wife has never paid the full amount since the order was set. She is approximately 18,000 behind in paying. Ohio child support said that it was in my hands to get better payments. The way the laws are I feel that I may never see the arrears that she owes. Please help.


Thanks Michael

You need to file for contempt

Hello Michael,

You will need to take her to court and file for contempt for non payment of child support. You can file, or make the motion to the courts yourself without a attorney.

If your situation is more complicated you may need a lawyer. If so, check out our legal for our great service.

Hope this helps.

Take care,
