Enforcing Support Agreements
When you and your partner were first making important decisions about the custody and support of your child, you may have trusted that your partner would honor the terms of any and all of the agreements associated with child support. Now that your partner has failed to uphold his or her end of the support bargain, you should begin to explore what legal action may be available to you as a means to enforce your agreements.
Maintaining the Integrity of a Support Agreement
The support agreement that you and your partner signed was intended to help provide your child or children with the material support they need after the divorce. Unfortunately, it may become necessary to take legal action as a means of enforcing your agreement to recover the support you need to pay for the following:
- Educational costs
- Medical bills
- Rent/mortgage costs
- Sustenance and care
Whatever the particulars of your situation happens to be, our legal team in San Jose can help you develop a legal strategy to enforce the exact terms of the support agreement you and your partner agreed to honor.
