Complying with Child Support Orders
Once a child support order is established, the Child Support Program monitors payments and if payments are not received as ordered, the Program takes steps to contact the parent who owes support.
The Child Support Program has a variety of options to assist parents. This includes providing job placement and training and other community resources. The Program can also initiate enforcement actions. State and federal laws apply to how and when the Program can use certain actions. The Child Support Program also partners with other state child support agencies when one parent lives in another state.
