Past Due Support Can Affect Your NJ Business

If you are obligated to pay child support to a former spouse or domestic partner you, and your business partners, may be shocked when your business interest is attached by them. Although they may only attach your interest, a former spouse or partner who obtains a judgment against you for past due child support can affect your business by tying it up in litigation and creating strife among you and the other members of your limited liability company (LLC). New Jersey Statute 42:2B-45 allows a judgment creditor to attach the interest of a debtor in any limited liability company in which they are a member. This judgment will not attach to the interest of any other LLC members but litigation as to what your specific interest in the LLC is can create enough tension to result in dissolution, or your being forced out of the LLC by the other members. If you are seeking to collect or defending against collection of a large amount of past due child or spousal support you should contact a family law attorney with small business divorce experience immediately to protect your rights.
