More Success Stories

Over the years many cases stand out because of the difficultly involved with enforcing the orders and the way the cases ended. We attribute the success to having the right tools and knowing how to use them. This is a collection of some of those cases.

Putman Case originated in St. Joseph County, Indiana.
The client lived in Indiana and the absent parent lived in Colorado. The payments began very slowly but ended with a lump sum payment in the amount of $33,950.00 dollars. There were many obstacles to overcome and collection effort took eighteen months.

Meisner Case originated in Allen County, Indiana.
The client lived in Indiana and the absent parent lived in Florida. This case was an arrearage only case the support order had stopped several years prior. The absent parent lived in Boca Raton and had a clear ability to pay; the only payment we received was for payment in full $13,000.00 dollars.

Sibley Case originated in Elkhart County, Indiana.
The client lived in Indiana and the absent parent lived in Florida. We began collecting regular payments for the first year, then the absent parents ability to pay was revealed and the final payment was $15,000.00 dollars. The bonus in this case was the absent parent began being a parent again and the relationship with the child was restored.

Stone Case originated in Cook County, Illinois.
The client lived in Indiana and the absent parent lived in Illinois. This case was an arrearage only case; the support order had stopped several years prior. The absent parent was the sole owner of property located in Illinois. We received only one payment, the balance in full including interest $18,884.04 dollars. The collection effort took seven months.

Lee Case originated in Elkhart County, Indiana
The client lived in Indiana and the absent parent lived in Florida. The child support order stopped shortly after the case was contracted and became an arrearage only case. Over several years we received regular payments totaling $15,200.00 dollars and our final payment was a check for $20, 000.00 dollars. This case was six years of very difficult work because the absent parent was self employed and very mobile.

Panter Case originated in Kalamazoo County, Michigan.
The client lived in Michigan and the absent parent lived in Indiana. The case had gone without being worked for years by the Friend of the Court because the absent parent could not be located. We found the absent parent owned and lived at the residence reflected in FOC records. The Friend of the Court refused to cooperate with private enforcement, so we registered the order in Indiana and enforced it. We received payment of arrears in full $13,999.22 dollars in two lump sum payments.

King Case originated in Lake County, Illinois.
The client lived in Michigan and the absent parent lived in Nevada. This was a direct pay case with a small child support order and the arrearage was six years in the making when we began working it. Over the next three years we resolved the case by collecting a total of $17,250.00 dollars with the final payment of $3,450.00 dollars.

Turner Case originated in St. Charles County, Missouri.
The client lived in Missouri and the absent parent lived in Missouri. This was an arrearage only case that required constant babysitting to receive payments. The absent parent never had an ability to pay a larger sum; the payments were received slowly but totaled $21,520.00 dollars over five years.

Overton Case originated in St. Joseph County, Indiana.
The client lived in Indiana and the absent parent lived in Georgia. This case took three and a half years to complete the collection process. Prior to our involvement the absent parent had not paid in sixteen years. We collected $29,350.00 dollars with the last payment being $15,570.00 dollars.

Smiley Case originated in Elkhart County, Indiana
The client lived in Michigan and the absent parent lived in California. The absent parent worked very little and when he did it was a game to hide that information. We collected a total of $30,374.20 dollars with a payment of $17,906.23 dollars coming in the middle of our collection effort.

Wentland Case originated in Elkhart County, Indiana
The client lived in Indiana and the absent parent lived in Indiana. The absent parent had been convicted of a felony for non support and served his time in the Department of Corrections when he was released he still did not pay. Over five years we collected a total of $26,475.00 dollars with the last payment being $9,500.00 dollars.

Success can come in many ways but rarely does it occur in cases such at these without someone pushing to make it happen. Successful collection does not always come in a big lump sum payment but when collection is made, that is the success.
