Most of the activities described herein can be performed for you by an OCSE worker. However, a lawyer may be desirable for activities such as the preparation of depositions, subpoenas, objections, and appeals. Certain court activities such as the examination of witnesses and the introduction of evidence may also require a lawyer.
If you do not have a private attorney, you may retain the services of an Assistant County Attorney for child support services at a cost of $135.00 per hour. Payment for the services provided by the Assistant County Attorney will be deducted from your child support payments at the rate of 25 percent of the child support received.
