Child Support Enforcement
For more than a decade, Fair Price Lawyers has been helping parents just like you collect the back child support they're owed. Collecting child support arrears can be very difficult without help, especially when the other parent refuses to cooperate or tries to hide from their obligations. Government child support agencies can only do so much with their limited resources. Fortunately, we have have years of experience finding parents who owe child support and making them pay. We're ready to provide you the benefit of that experience. Call (801) 999-0104 today or click this link to Schedule a Free 15-Minute Zoom Consult with a Utah child support collection attorney.
Q: What does Fair Price Lawyers charge and when will I have to pay?
A: When it comes to what we charge for our services our motto is simple: we don’t get paid unless and until you do. We are so confident in our ability to collect child support for you that we won’t ask for a dime until we have put money in your pocket. Compare this with other law firms or private agencies that charge “intake” or “processing” fees. Fair Price Lawyers doesn't charges those fees. When we collect support for a client, we will charge a fee equal to 30% of the support we collect. You will keep 70% of the support collected. We hope you’ll agree with getting 70% of something is better than 100% of nothing.
Q: How does Fair Price Lawyers compare to the government?
- A: It’s difficult to compare the work of a government child support agency to the success of Fair Price Lawyers. Government agencies primarily focus on collecting child support in cases where a parent is paying support without issue. In contrast, at Fair Price Lawyers, we focus on cases in which the parent owing child support refuses to pay all or part of what they owe.
- Q: Can Fair Price Lawyers intercept the other parent’s tax refund?
- A: No. Only a government agency may intercept tax returns.
- Q: How long will it take before I start receiving support?
- A: Every case is different, and the outcomes are influenced by various factors, including the difficulty in locating the other parent, where they are located, and whether they are employed or have assets to seize. Regrettably, in some cases, we're not able to collect anything. However, rest assured that if Fair Price Lawyers accepts your case, we will do whatever is possible to collect the support owed to you. Throughout the entire process, we will keep you informed with regular updates on our progress.
- Q: Does Fair Price Lawyers also collect spousal support or alimony?
- A: Yes. Although the majority of our cases involve child support enforcement, we also collect spousal support, which is also known as alimony. Fortunately, many of the same methods useful to collect child support can also be used to collect alimony.
- Q: How do I know if I’m eligible for help from Support Collectors?
- A: You are eligible If you meet these requirements:
- There is a court order awarding you child support or spousal support (alimony);
- You are not currently receiving TANF or other public cash assistance; and
- You are owed at least $2,000 in child support and/or spousal support.
- If you’re eligible you can get started now by calling (801) 999-0104.
- Q: My children are over 18, can you still help me?
- A: Yes. In fact, these are often the best type of cases since the other parent has had more time to increase earnings, acquire assets or contribute to a retirement account.
- Q: Can Fair Price Lawyers help me even if I already have a case open with my government child support agency?
- A: Yes, you have the right to hire a private child support enforcement attorney even if you’re already receiving assistance from a government agency. The government agency also can’t close your case with them simply because you’ve also chosen to work with an attorney. Fair Price Lawyers maintains a good working relationship with the Office of Recovery Services, Utah's child support collection agency, to ensure a seamless and coordinated enforcement.
- Q: Can Fair Price Lawyers help me even if the government child support agency closed my case?
- A: Probably. When a government child support agency closes your case, it only means that they're no longer working to collect you child support. It does not necessarily mean you are no longer owed support. Government child support agencies close cases for a number of reasons. If you're still owed support, call Fair Price Lawyers today at (801) 999-0104 so we can help.
- Q: How do I know how much support I’m owed?
- A: When we take your case, we will review the court orders and case records to determine what amount of child support was ordered, when it was ordered, how much was paid, if any, and how much interest has accrued. Afterwards, we will be able to tell you the total amount of support arrearages you are owed.

- Q: How is Fair Price Lawyers different than the government agency I’ve been working with?
- A: Government child support agencies do a great job. However, they cannot collect support in all cases due to limited resources and legal constraints. That's where we come in. We have the time, resources, and passion to enforce your child support order.
- Q: If I don’t have a copy of my court order, how can I get one?
- A: You don't need to worry about obtaining a copy of your court order. If we take your case, we will file a limited appearance in your case which will give us online access to court's order. We will provide you a copy for your records as well.
- Q: Will I have to appear in Court?
- A: It is unlikely you will have to appear in court if you already have a support order. Occasionally, though, Fair Price Lawyers may determine that the best child support enforcement solution requires returning to court. If that’s the case, we will appear in court on your behalf.
