Once a child support and medical support order is obtained, an Income Withholding Order (Wage Assignment) and National Medical Support Notice is served on the non-custodial parent’s employer. Regular child support payments will be withheld from the non-custodial parent’s wages and children will be added to the non-custodial party’s health insurance benefits if applicable.
If a non-custodial parent is late or fails to pay court ordered child support amounts due, Child Support Services has many enforcement remedies to collect the support including:
- Income Withholding Order
- Suspension of driver license
- Suspension of other professional license
- Writ of attachment
- Levy on bank accounts
- Liens recorded against real property
- Income tax refund intercept
- Unemployment and State disability intercepts
- Prevent issuance of passport
- Contempt of Court proceeding
- Coordination with other states or countries for Enforcement
NOTE: The Enforcement remedy used is at the discretion of Department of Child Support Services.
