Who Can Help Me If The Obligor Is Not Sending In The Child Support Payments?

If you do not have a case open with a Regional Child Support Enforcement Unit (RCSEU), the Clerk of Court may be able to issue an Income Withholding Order to the obligor`s employer so that the child support amount is deducted from the obligor`s paycheck. The clerk can also schedule a hearing at which the obligor must show why the payments have not been made. If you have applied for services, the RCSEU can take these actions and may also be able to take other enforcement action to help you get your child support. If you do not have a case open with a RCSEU, you may want to contact them to see what services they can provide to you.
