26 Dec Garnish Wages: Does Your Ex-Spouse Owe You Back Child Support or Alimony?
Does Your Ex-Spouse Owe You Back Child Support or Alimony? The State of Florida has laws that can help you enforce your rights. Did you know that Florida can actually garnish wages for child support? Under Florida Statute §61.12 (2014), the court may issue a continuing writ of garnishment to your ex-spouse’s employer in order to enforce the order of the court for periodic payment of alimony or child support or both. The writ may provide that the salary of any person having a duty of support pursuant to such order be garnished on a periodic and continuing basis for so long as the court may determine or until otherwise ordered by the court or a court of competent jurisdiction in a further proceeding.
