What If The Non-Custodial Parent Doesn't Pay?

If the non­custodial parent doesn`t pay, Probation will take steps to enforce the order. If not previously ordered, this may include requiring the non­custodial parent`s employer to take money out of his or her pay, having the past­due amount taken out of a tax refund or lottery winnings, returning the case to court or reporting the delinquency to a credit reporting agency. Probation can also execute on the non­custodial parent`s property such as bank accounts, insurance proceeds, cars, boats, or real estate.
