daniella has made some interesting contributions
Father not paying maintenance.

Good afternoon,
Can anyone in Vaud advise me about how to make my ex pay maintenance as instructed by the judge at separation court ? He stopped paying and I badly need this contribution for my son who lives with me. I beleive there is a group that will take this on but would like your advice first, if anyone has been through this ? Many thanks indeed, Daniella

Re: Father not paying maintenance.

You can get some money and support from the government in case of non payment of child support

I believe this government institution handles that in VD:

Re: Father not paying maintenance.

"If maintenance is not paid

If your ex-husband or wife neglects their maintenance obligations:
• The cantons are required to provide a free service to help the person entitled to maintenance to recover the payments. In addition, all cantons will, under certain conditions, make advanced payments to tide you over until the amount is paid.
• In certain circumstances you can apply to the court for a debt recovery order to have the outstanding contribution taken directly from the salary of your ex-husband or wife and transferred to you.
• If you are owed maintenance payments you can initiate debt recovery proceedings at the credit agency of the person owing contributions.

You can also initiate criminal proceedings against the person who neglects their maintenance obligations even though they were in a position to pay maintenance."

Re: Father not paying maintenance.

I don't think there is anything you can do... Even if you enforce it but the money is not there it won't appear. All you can do is ask the canton, but don't it's going to be easy to get money from anyone. They will require you to find a job sooner or later.

Unfortunately your link leads me to "page not found".

OP, this might help. If you scroll down, you will find an address for Vaud .

Assuming you are a troll, but nonetheless...

The Judge will not instruct to pay money that ain't there in these cases. But hey, you knew that already.

Re: Father not paying maintenance.

which part did u not get from the original replies? gtfo

> I don't think there is anything you can do... Even if you enforce it but the money is not there it won't appear. All you can do is ask the canton,

exactly, from that point it's canton's problem to make the money appear that they ordered the man to pay, up to some limits, or eat the loss

> Unfortunately your link leads me to "page not found". OP, this might help. If you scroll down, you will find an address for Vaud .

did you not notice the dates? the thread is almost a year old

The canton will pay, and recoup the money from the father.

Re: Father not paying maintenance.

What I mean is if the money is not there, is not there and most of the cantons stop wasting even more money to try to recoup it. I tell you what happens, NOTHING happens! It's just taken from your taxes, much easier and cost effective. One year passed, yes the guy is probably enjoying himself offshore.

LOL, no I didn't notice that. Sorry.

Hope daniella's problem is solved by now too then.

Gargiulo heading for the market-place then, reviving old threads?
