How To Collect Child Support

When a non-custody parent refuses or is unable to provide court ordered child support payments a hardship is created for the custody parent and the child or children.  There are agencies that together with the court can help collect child support.

If the non-paying parent has a job, the court can order that the wages be garnished for the child support payments.  Once served, the employer would then deduct the payments from the non-custody parent's wages and pay them directly to the custody parent.

If the non-paying parent owes a large sum in back support payments the court can order a judgment for payment.  The parent's assets and income can be taken so settle the judgment.  Bank accounts, other income and non-exempt assets of value can be levied and liquidated to satisfy the judgment.

If the non-paying parent is avoiding being located, the Federal Parent Locator Service (FPLS) can be used to determine his/her whereabouts.  The FPLS can be used in connection with parents owing child support, with parents refusing visitation rights and with parental kidnapping.  The FPLS maintains a nation wide directory of newly hired employees and a registry of child support orders.  The two lists are matched every two days and provided to State agencies.

Some States provide the assistance of State agencies, such as the district attorney's office, to assist in collecting court ordered child support.  Other support services may be provided by the court to aid in payment collection.

States can also collect back payments by intercepting State and Federal tax refund payments and liens can be placed on real estate holdings.  Some courts will hold a non-paying parent in contempt of court if the parent had income that could have been used to make child support payments.
