Do You Want To Update Your Child Support Order?
There are many reasons a child support order may need to be updated. Your child’s living arrangements may have changed. You may now have your child for more overnights than when your order went into effect. Your child is living with you fulltime and has additional expenses. Your income has changed. Your child’s other parent’s income has dramatically changed. Whatever your circumstances are, financial support for your child is vital to his or her well-being.

Is Your Child’s Other Parent Behind On Making Child Support Payments?
When the other parent does not provide the support your child needs, your child suffers the consequences. Has your former spouse or other parent failed to follow through on the child support obligations set forth in your paternity, divorce decree, or settlement agreement?
Indiana Child Support Rules and Guidelines govern child support obligations. State laws provide methods to enforce payment of child support, such as:
- Garnishment of wages or unemployment compensation
- Collecting state or federal tax refunds
- Seizing insurance settlement payments
- Taking lottery winnings
- Driver’s license suspension
- Withholding professional licenses
- Stopping hunting and/or fishing license privileges
Indiana Child Support Enforcement Authority is empowered to network with numerous federal and state agencies; for example, it can deny or revoke passports of noncustodial parents who are behind on their child support payments.
