    Assuming that you have received a maintenance order from the Family Court for the father of the child to provide maintenance for your child or yourself, and that he has subsequently defaulted on maintenance payments in the time he has been uncontactable, you may lodge a complaint to enforce the maintenance order before a District Judge or Magistrate in the Family Court.
