What Happens If The Automated System Tells Me A Check Was Mailed On February 10th And It Is Now February 15th?

We will not begin the process of stopping payment until a check has been missing for 20 days after issuance. After 20 days, please notify the State Office of Child Support and we will advise you of the next steps. This is a time­consuming process but until the 20 days has passed, there is little we can do.
