Q) Why can’t my attorney work on my child support problem while I am receiving services from the child support program?
A) Yes, in most cases, you can still work with an attorney while receiving services from a state child support agency. The fact that you are receiving services from the agency does not prevent you from hiring an attorney to represent you in your child support case.
However, it’s important to note that your attorney and the state child support agency may have different roles and responsibilities in your case. The agency is responsible for enforcing the child support order and collecting payments on your behalf, while your attorney is responsible for representing your legal interests in court and advising you on legal matters related to child support.
If you have concerns about how your attorney and the state child support agency will work together, you may want to discuss these concerns with both your attorney and the agency. They may be able to provide more information about their roles and responsibilities, and how they can work together to achieve the best outcome for you and your child.
