The Pittsburgh family law courts may issue sever
penalties for your failure to pay support. If you are
in contempt of a support order, the courts may
suspend your driver's license, garnish/attach you
wages, and even incarcerate you.
The courts in Pittsburgh may use the threat of
incarceration as a tool to extract support payments
from you. Of course, if you, the payor party, are in
jail long term, you will eventually lose all earning

continue to build and the debt may haunt you your
Lets Make a Deal.
The courts are holding all the cards once you have
violated a support order. Typically, your best option

compromise on the amount owed and the date it is
due for payment. Show the opposing party and
court you are serious by having a lawyer present to
explain your position.
Strike The Right Tone.
