Child Support Enforcement in Utah
Child support disputes have become one of the leading causes of family law conflict in Utah and nationwide. Defending the financial support of children and enforcing the legal responsibility of that support, to be shared by both parents, is something taken very seriously by Utah lawmakers and the courts. The Utah Office of Recovery Services has been given special authorities through federal and state law to investigate and enforce child support payments. Outside collection agencies and private attorney help is also permitted by parents seeking to enforce child support. These efforts provide an essential service to deserving children, and most often these processes, including the dispute resolutions, effectively manage the thousands of support relationships without confusion or error. However, when occasional further confusion or dispute remains, legal advice from a qualified Utah Enforcement Attorney is recommended.
