Child Support Division

Services: Order Enforcement

Child Support will work to enforce the child support amount that is ordered by the court. These are some of the enforcement tools used:

  • Income withholding
  • Federal and state tax refund offset
  • Lottery prize offset
  • Report to credit bureaus
  • License and vehicle registration suspension
  • Passport denial
  • Freeze and seize real and personal property
  • Claim against estate and inheritance
  • Refer for state or criminal prosecution

These same tools may also be used to enforce a dollar-specific amount for medical support.

For more information on enforcement tools including when they may apply, see Collection Tools.

To enforce health insurance coverage ordered by a court, the program issues a National Medical Support Notice to the non-custodial parent's employer requiring the employer to enroll the child in any available health insurance plan.
