Courts May Not Enjoin Parents From Collecting on Child Support Arrearage Judgments

The Family Law Prof Blog digests Leopold v. Leopold, 2006 Ala. Civ. App. LEXIS 631 (October 20, 2006). "The Alabama Court of Appeals reversed a trial court's order in a child support modification case in which the trial court had set a repayment schedule for child support arrearages and had then ordered that mother could not pursue any other enforcement actions so long as father was making the court ordered payments. The court of appeals noted that such a restriction on the mother's private collection efforts was in error, especially given the paucity of the repayment schedule the court had ordered."
