Child Support Enforcement
child support lawyers at McKinley Irvin can help you whether you need to establish a
child support order, enforce one, or have been served with a child support
action. Either a private party or the State can file child support enforcement
actions in Washington.
At McKinley Irvin, we have negotiated and litigated on behalf of parties
seeking back support judgments, as well as those defending against such
actions. We also have experience in cases brought by the State through
the prosecutor's office or Department of Child Support.
Enforcing Out-of-State and International Support Judgments
Each state in the United States has adopted what is called the Uniform
Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA). This act provides the latitude
to enforce support judgments made in other states and even orders made
in other countries. In addition to enforcement, the UIFSA also allows
the court to impose a new judgment for any unpaid child support.
If your Washington child support case involves a support arrangement enacted
in another state or country, the child support attorneys at McKinley Irvin
are prepared to help.
Selecting a Washington Child Support Lawyer
Family law issues are among the most sensitive legal issues a person can

Whether you need to enforce a child support order, or have been served
one, we invite you to contact our firm. A member of our support staff
will be able to connect you with the lawyer best suited to meet your needs.
