A: I'm not sure. You should, however, contact your county probation department and ask to speak with the probation officer who handles child support judgments. Tell him what you know. If they can intercept it, he/she should be able to help you figure out how. If not, you can at least try for a levy of the bank account where the money is channeled into, if he puts the proceeds from the policy into an account that he owns. Good luck.
