Court order to pay child support

The District Attorney’s Office, Family Support Division can obtain a court order requiring the noncustodial parent to pay child support.

They need to know where the noncustodial parent resides or works before securing a court order for child support payments.

If the noncustodial parent refuses to make child support payments, you may be able to obtain an order for income withholding of the child support from the noncustodial parent’s wages and assets.

Collecting support from benefit checks

If the noncustodial parent receives unemployment, workers’ compensation or other state retirement system benefits, you may be able to have those benefit checks attached to the payment support system.

If the noncustodial parent has no source of income, the court will order him or her to search for a job and notify the court once a job is secured.
