How Child Support Is Enforced
In reviewing the file to determine the best method of enforcement, the FSD or local child support agency`s first concern is establishing a regular payment plan for current support. Collection of arrearages (pastdue support) is the secondary concern. The best method of enforcement is selected based on all the information in the case including the noncustodial parent`s income, and what kind of assets he/she has.
The FSD or local child support agency will try to get the noncustodial parent to voluntarily pay. Sometimes regular and full payments are received from the noncustodial parent in response to regular monthly billings or telephone reminders from the FSD or local child support agency.
