Lump Sum Of $86,000 In Child Support Collected This Month!
Success comes in all sizes… a first payment on a child support case that has not had a payment in years, a full settlement on a case or even just finding the NCP. We just had the privilege of helping a client receive a settlement in full from the estate of a deceased NCP. Liens do pay off in time, sometimes a long time!! Many people don’t see the value in liening a property to get support years down the road. SCI, with the help of our talented legal team, secured a lien on the NCP’s property in 2009 since the NCP was not going to pay. The lien sat for a few years, the NCP was also behind in taxes and today I’m happy to say that our client received a check today for $60k, total collection on the case was over $86,000!
There are many ways a lien can be used to possibly secure support that is owed. Liens or levies can be placed on homes, land, bank accounts and even lottery winnings! ( http://news.msn.com/us/njs-powerball-winner-owes-dollar29k-in-child-support)
A lien is a valuable tool in our efforts to collect support and it is team work that produces results. While securing a lien on property is not always an easy task, it is possible. Many non-custodial parent tend to hide assets or have assets listed in someone else’s name. This makes collection a difficult task. If we can verify that the NCP owns property, the next step is to have a valid arrears calculation documenting what is actually owed (we can help with this). Our accounting department will work with the information provided by the government agencies or from your records if support was to go directly to you. Good, accurate recording keeping is key to a complete calculation.
Let Support Collectors try to help you collect the child support support that you deserve! Have any ideas about property the NCP may own? Give us a call and let’s check it out!
