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.
