I’m sorry to hear you and your children are having difficulty getting adequate child support. The North Carolina Child Support Enforcement Agency (CSEA) has the ability to help parents establish paternity, have support orders entered, locate parents obligated to pay support, and enforce orders. They can also help to have orders modified. I recommend speaking to someone at CSEA or to another attorney. There may be some issues about modifying your existing order, though, depending on when it was entered and whether any circumstances have changed since then. If you are in Wake County, you can reach CSEA at (919)856-6630. Otherwise, follow this link to see phone numbers in counties across the state: http://www.rosen.com/ppf/ID/30/issues.asp. CSEA also has a website you can visit at http://www.dhhs.state.nc.us/dss/cse/cse_hm.htm.
