IS THE DCSE (DIVISION OF CHILD SUPPORT ENFORCEMENT) AFTER YOU FOR BACK CHILD SUPPORT ARREARS?
“Arrears” refers to your past due child support. This is your debt that is owed to a person of the state. The person you owe your arrears to is usually your child’s custodial parent, or the parent your child lives with. You may also owe money to the state if you child’s household gets public benefits or got them while you were ordered to pay child support.
If you owe back child support, the courts can take legal actions as follows:
- Withholding money from your paycheck or other income
- Placing liens on your real or personal property
- Garnishing your federal and state tax refunds
- Suspending your driving, occupational, and recreational (hunting/fishing) licenses
- Denying or revoking your passport
- Contempt proceedings, which can lead to fines, jail time, and other penalties
