California Family Code Section 291

In In re Marriage of Plescia (1997) 59 Cal. App. 4th 252 [69 Cal. Rptr. 2d 120], the appellate court noted that in amending the relevant statutes to make support obligations enforceable until paid in full, "the Legislature seemed to be saying that lack of diligence in seeking enforcement of a judgment for spousal support would no longer be looked at." (Id. at p. 261.) Since the relevant statutes apply to both child and spousal support, we see no reason why the Plescia court's conclusion that Family Code section 291 is no longer a viable defense to enforcement of spousal support judgments should not apply equally to child support judgments. (In re Marriage of Plescia, supra, 59 Cal. App. 4th at pp. 261-262, 69 Cal. Rptr. 2d 120.)
