Set Aside Child Support Arrears

You May not be Penalized for Back-Due Child Support

If you owe back-due child support arrears because you were never notified of your child support obligation, the Los Angeles Fathers' Rights Attorney Elena Mebtahi can help you set-aside the back due payments. Improper service provides the basis to set aside the judgment against you, including a judgment for wage garnishment and driver's license suspension.

Call Fathers' Rights Attorney Elena Mebtahi at 310-207-4005 for a free consultation about child support arrearages. During your consultation, she will listen to the details of your case and discuss a strategy for combating the fines and other consequences you face due to child support issues.

Basis for a Motion to Set-Aside in California

If a court failed to notify you of your child support obligation, you can petition the court to set aside any judgments against you. The basis for the law is that you should not be punished if you were not aware of your obligation to pay for child support.

You should also not experience the consequences of a child support arrear, such as wage garnishment or driver's license suspension, or levying accounts, if you were not properly served with notice. There are limitations for filing a motion for the set-aside of a judgment because of improper service. Timeliness is extremely important because generally, after six months of reasonably finding out about the child support order against you, the set-aside motion is at the discretion of the judge. If you believe that you were not properly notified of your child support obligation or a child support judgment against you, call a Los Angeles fathers' rights attorney who has been focused on this area of the law for many years.

What We Do

What Our Clients Say

“Attorney Mebtahi is no doubt the best!!!

My husband and I secured her for a bogus child support case he had from a previous marriage, and she saved us a total of $92(k).

From start to finish, she and her team were responsive. We were a bit apprehensive in the beginning since the case orginated out of California, thus requiring us to hire an attorney from there (even though we live in Missouri). Communication and trust were key since we relied on her to respond to all of our inquiries via phone and email, and trust that the money we authorized to be debited from our credit/debit cards would not be spent in vain.

For this reason, we highly recommend her services for any child support case that needs to be modified. Her professionalism, flexibility and attention to detail added to the successful outcome and we greatly appreciate working with someone of her knowledge and expertise.

Elena is the truth and definitely our California attorney!”
