Child Support Enforcement

Child Support Enforcement Helpline 

If you are a custodial parent who is owed child support, call the helpline below for resources and assistance. You will connect with your appropriate state agency for help.

If a parent who is obligated to pay child support fails to make payments under the term of a court order, there are steps you can take. In 1984 an act was passed which says the state attorneys must help a parent collect. Dead-beat parents can find their federal tax refund intercepted, along with other methods of collection such as wage garnishments, proper attachment, and in some states even the revocation of their driver’s license. Unfortunately, even with these mechanisms in place, many learn to game the system and avoid making payments. We urge you to stay-the-course and be diligent with your pursuit. Your child deserves the support they are due.
