ORDER ENFORCEMENT


ENFORCEMENT Court action is one method used for enforcement of orders. Some other methods include Lien Docket, License Suspension, Passport Denial, and Account Seizure.

This is by State statute. If arrears accumulate high enough, the case may become eligible for Tax Intercept. A tax intercept is the withholding of a tax refund (all or part) to be applied to child support debts. A financial worker at the Child Support Agency can answer questions you may have regarding Tax Intercept. There is also more information regarding the Tax Intercept Program at: TAX INTERCEPT; NOTICES
