Published 8:00 pm, Friday, October 31, 2008
Child support services are free of charge. Contact your regional office of the Department of Social Services for an application.
Q: How do I enforce a child support order?
A: If you have applied for IV-D services, the Support Enforcement Services Unit will enforce your child support order using three tools: income withholding; finding a parent in contempt of court (a parent can be incarcerated until payment is delivered); license suspension for 30 days (driver's license, professional or occupational license).
Q. Where do I get help to get started?
A: Call Support Enforcement Services. They have electronic records at their fingertips that can help you navigate the system. Call (800) 228-KIDS.
