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.
