How to find out the amount of alimony debt

How to find out the amount of alimony debt

Alimony debt is an amount that is formed due to the absence or incomplete payment of alimony obligations recorded in a court order, writ of execution or voluntary agreement. According to statistics from the State Executive Service of Ukraine, more than one million documents on the collection of alimony debt are pending execution.

Information about debt can be found:

  • by personal appeal to the authorized bodies;

The alimony payer may stop making payments for various reasons. If the debt arose unintentionally (without the payer’s intention), he has the opportunity to reduce the amount of the debt or be exempt from paying it in court by providing evidence of good reasons for the debt.

In the absence of valid reasons for the debt, the debtor is subject to liability: a fine, restriction of certain rights of the defaulter. Malicious evasion of alimony may result in punishment in the form of correctional labor, sometimes even administrative or criminal arrest.

Amount of alimony debt by last name

If alimony debts arise, you must find out the amount and take all necessary measures to eliminate it.

There is only one way in which you can find out the amount of debt.

  • Personally contact the authorized bodies of the state executive service of Ukraine.

In the case of a personal appeal, only persons related to the direct parties to the enforcement proceedings (the payer himself, the recipient of alimony or their representatives under a notarized power of attorney) can obtain information about the amount of alimony obligation.

What are the consequences of alimony debt?

Failure by the alimony payer to comply with a court order, alimony agreement or writ of execution leads to the appearance of debt, regardless of the method of payment:

  • voluntarily (according to a notarial alimony agreement concluded between the parents);
  • forcibly (when the alimony claimant applies to the court).

To collect alimony debt, the reason why it arose must be established:

  • Intentional (deliberate evasion of the debtor from paying alimony, without good reason);
  • unintentional (debt that arose without the fault or intent of the debtor).

Liability for intentional evasion of alimony payments

In case of intentional evasion of alimony by a debtor, the following types of liability exist:

  • Civil liability. Provides for the payment of a penalty for late alimony payments. The amount of the penalty is 1% of the debt amount for each overdue day. To receive payment, you must file a statement of claim with the court, which will indicate the requirement to collect the debt and penalties.
  • Administrative responsibility. For non-payment of arrears of alimony, the following penalties are provided:
  • seizure of property;
  • deprivation of parental rights (in case of malicious evasion of child support payments);
  • ban on traveling abroad (if the amount of debt is more than 4 months);
  • deprivation of a driver’s license (if the amount of debt is more than 4 months).
  • Criminal liability. Occurs when there is malicious evasion of paying alimony. In accordance with the Criminal Code of Ukraine, the following types of punishment for non-payment are distinguished:
  • community service (for a period of 80 to 120 hours);
  • arrest (for up to three months);
  • restriction of freedom for up to two years.

Release from unintentional arrears of alimony

In cases where alimony debt arose unintentionally, the Family Code provides for the possibility of reducing the amount of the debt or exemption from payment of the debt in court. To do this, the court must be presented with evidence of valid reasons. The reasons may be as follows:

  • serious illness of both the debtor himself and his immediate relatives (disability or groups, complex surgery, etc.)
    unforeseen life situation (for example, fire);
  • circumstances of force majeure (natural disaster, location in a military conflict zone);
  • error of third parties (error of a bank employee, accounting department when transferring funds).

Also, exemption from payment of debt or reduction of its amount is possible by mutual agreement of the two parties (with the exception of the payment of alimony for minor children).

To reduce or exempt from payment of debt, the payer has the right to file a claim. Cases of this type are subject to judicial review.
