The Child Support Division provides assistance in the establishment, enforcement, and collection of child support.
Title IV-D provides for local, county-based resources to assist in the establishment, collection, and enforcement of child support. Our office participates in this program so as to offer local services to help families and meet children's needs.
Our team consists of attorneys and case workers dedicated to helping members of our community with the child support needs.
We have tools and resources to help locate a missing parent so as to help establish and enforce a support order.
We can help establish a new support order so that money can begin being paid to help children.
The law allows for us to assist in the pursuit and collection of child support on behalf of the child's best interests so as to provide for their needs.
This may be done by various methods, including:
Contempt of Court proceedings
Income Withholding Orders from paychecks and Unemployment
Seizure of Federal and State tax refunds
Suspension of Driver's License and Professional Licenses
The law also allows for us to assist in helping to establish with a Court a child support order amount consistent with income and other factors provided in Indiana law.
Our office DOES NOT represent people individually but rather the State of Indiana's interest in the collection and enforcement of child support. Therefore, we cannot file for divorce on any one's behalf.
As stated above, our office will not assist in these matters.
