Child support laws can be enforced if payment for child support is not paid or is due. The plaintiff can file a complaint with the relevant bodies to have the defendant pay for the financial support of the child or children.
According to the Alabama child, a parent who has agreed or have been directed by a court order to pay for support, they should abide by that order or agreement.
If this is not the case, you can file a request to have the culprit take up his or her responsibilities.
