John*, a US Army veteran, came to Levitt & Quinn for help with a problem he could not fix on his own. Prior to and during his military service, John consistently paid his court-ordered child support and had regular contact with his daughter. Then while he was deployed overseas, the court changed John’s child support obligation without his knowledge. To make matters worse, John lost access to his daughter and learned that the court did not credit him for his past child support payments. As a result, John faced losing his relationship with his child and a wage garnishment he could not afford. John tried to file court papers from overseas, but nothing he did worked. When John returned from serving his country, he found himself burdened with almost $20,000 in child support arrears and cut off from access to his daughter.
LevittQuinn stood with John in court, successfully representing him at multiple hearings to erase his arrears balance, get him credit for a $5,000 over payment, and renew his regular contact with his daughter. John was elated by the outcome, and grateful that LevittQuinn was there to help him achieve justice.
