How To Recoup Child Support Overpayment

child support overpaymentQuestion:

My child support case says I have a credit of thousands of dollars because of a child support overpayment. How can I recoup that money?


I do not practice law in your state. Therefore, I cannot inform you as to the specific laws of your state and can only provide you with general tips on your situation.

The state may or may not be able to issue you a check for the credit. If you received an order/notice, it may state what the next step is in recovering the overpayment. Miami divorce lawyer Christina Lapadula

I would act quickly, as some states have deadlines by which you must respond ore request a review of your account after receiving notification of the credit.

Therefore, I would urge you to contact a domestic litigation attorney licensed in your area and bring any information you have about the credit to your meeting with him or her so that they can fully examine the details of your situation.

Remember, I am unable to provide you with anything more than tips in your situation, so please consult a domestic litigation attorney in your area to obtain specific advice as to the laws of your state and how they impact your potential case.
