What Can Be Done If Your Ex Doesn’t Pay Child Support, Spousal Support or Maintenance?

If you have children and you also have an order for child support, you can get help to collect money from your spouse or ex-spouse from the Support Collection Unit (SCU) in Family Court. 

Unless you are very sure that your spouse or ex-spouse will pay the support ordered by the Judge or Support Magistrate, it is a good idea to have the judgment or order require your spouse or ex-spouse to pay both child support and spousal support or maintenance directly to SCU. SCU will then send the money to you. 

There may be a couple of weeks delay right at the beginning. Then, you will start receiving the money from SCU on a regular basis as long as your spouse or ex-spouse or his/her employer sends the support monies to SCU. SCU will keep track of what is paid by your spouse or ex-spouse and sent to you in its computer system.
