Child Support Payment Collection or Alimony Collection.

At Kind & Dashoff, LLC, we have used many legal remedies to collect deliquent child support or alimony payments.   Spousal support or “alimony” is a court ordered payment from one spouse to another after a divorce. In many cases, child support is paid to the parent that has custody of the child most of the time. Child support provides for such expenses as housing, food, clothing, etc. If you have an order for spousal or child support and the other party has fallen behind in their payments, you can take legal steps to get the money owed to you. The Law Offices of Kind & Dashoff, LLC specialize in all areas of debt collection in Washington, DC and the entire state of Maryland, including child support collection and alimony collection.

Kind & Dashoff, LLC Alimony or Child Support Collection Process

As soon as you send your delinquent alimony or child support claim to us, we perform a thorough analysis of the facts of the case.  We then conclude whether there is sufficient documentation to proceed with the collection process.  Once this step is complete, we send out a demand letter to the debtor and a letter to you acknowledging the receipt of your claim.  Sometimes, we make one or several collection calls to your debtor.  Most of the time, we will give your debtor one last opportunity to pay before we begin to take legal action.

If a debtor does not respond to the initial demand letter and/or phone call, we may recommend filing suit.  Once we obtain a judgment, we perform searches to find such things as the place of employment of the debtor, any bank accounts owned by the debtor, real and personal property owned by the debtor, etc.

We then file the appropriate paperwork to collect money through:

  • wage garnishments
  • bank account attachments
  • real property liens
  • etc.

At Kind & Dashoff, LLC, we get results for our clients. Additionally, we inform you at every step of the process.  We always follow and adhere to all of the rules and regulations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.  Contact us at any time at
