How Long Does It Take Ocse To Get An Order For Child Support?

Once a noncustodial parent has been located and if the custodial parent does not have an order for support, the OCSE will serve the noncustodial parent a Notice of Support Debt advising the person of his or her duty to support the child(ren). The noncustodial parent must respond to the notice and provide a financial statement. If the person does not contest the amount of support, orders can be obtained within 30 to 60 days after the noncustodial parent is served. If the noncustodial parent does not agree with the amount of support recommended by the OCSE, he or she may request a hearing. It may take 3 to 6 months if a hearing is requested.
