How can I go after a non-custodial parent that has been avoiding paying child support? There is no court order in place because he left when I was pregnant and has been working for cash. No agencies will assist me, they keep passing the job on.
It sounds to me as though you would surely benefit from filing a paternity action in court to have his paternity adjudicated and then have the court issue orders of custody and visitation and child support. Then the child support order would exist and be enforceable. With a child support order from a court you can garnish bank accounts, attach property, and have your state’s child support enforcement agency garnish wages.
Talk to a lawyer.
Talk to your state’s child support enforcement agency—it may be able to help you for little to no money.
