Support Collectors collects a record $342,677.00 in unpaid family support (alimony)

Making a difference one family at a time, one payment at a time is the definition of success and not just our tagline. After a seven year involvement with one of our California clients, we are nearing the end of our relationship. Why you may ask? Because we are expecting the final $18,000 payment of a $342,677.00 spousal maintenance debt!

Our case started in 2008, when a struggling 64 year old divorcee contacted us with a story we hear all the time; help was needed to collect alimony. After 25 years of marriage, the life she knew was no more.

This was not a typical case; the ex-husband was a company executive who managed to hide behind the companys an executive. In addition, he was not in the US, he resided overseas; in fact most of his personal investments were located in 3 different countries, none of which were the U.S. Our typical tools did not render payments, he refused to discuss the situation and pay the support that was owed. In fact his comment to our representatives was to, “take me to court”… eventually his wish came true. Our collaboration with a very knowledgeable and determined California attorney resulted in the garnishment of the ex-husband’s quarterly payments profit distributions from the company’s he had ownership in.

Clearly, a complicated case but we deal with many complicated cases and more often than not, get results. Our client was humbled by the support she had received form Support Collectors. Her journey was not an easy one, at times she was penniless, not knowing how to pay for the medical care she required. “It is comforting to know that I had the support of a team behind me who listened, cared and while they may not have truly been able to walk in my shoes, helped me obtain the alimony that was due to me. My thanks to everyone involved. Support Collectors was able to help me feel like I mattered again… I encourage others in my situation to contact them to help”.

Our clients say...

I want to thank you for doing a job neither the local child support office nor my attorney could accomplish, not only making it possible for my children to receive child support payments on a regular basis now, but also collecting the back support owed to me from a deadbeat dad.

I had exhausted all courts and literally hit a dead end. I was even told by the Clerk of the Court that I had no further recourse to collect support from my ex-husband, a deadbeat dad. Through your devoted efforts and your highly specialized team, payments started and are continuing.
