Complying with Child Support Orders
Once a child support order is established, the Child Support Program works with families and partners to help children receive the support they need and deserve. When there is a lack of voluntary compliance with a support order, the Program can take additional steps to achieve compliance.
The Child Support Program has a variety of methods which may be used to assist a parent in complying with their support order. This includes situations when a parent does not pay, does not reach a written agreement with the Program or if a parent contests the action being taken against them. State and federal laws apply to how and when certain methods can be used. The Child Support Program also partners with other state child support agencies when one parent lives in another state.
