How much does a private enforcement charge?
Another question we get all the time is how much do we charge… that’s a great question. Unlike government agencies that are funded by us taxpayers, we don’t get any funding from the government. Therefore, private enforcement agencies much charge a fee to it’s clients for its services. Most private enforcement agencies charge a “contingency fee” which is a percentage of what is collected. Some however, also charge a “set-up fee” or “case development fee”. We choose not to do that and only charge if we are successful. If we are able to collect, our fee would be 30% of each payment as we collect. You would receive 70% of each payment recovered. Most of our clients have waited several years to receive anything and are owed $15-20,000 in unpaid support so they say “70% of something is better than 100% of nothing”. If we are unsuccessful, you owe us nothing. In other words, there is no fee due.
