Does my child support stop when my child turns 18?
You will be billed ongoing child support until your child turns 18 or until your child turns 19 if he or she is full-time enrolled in a high school program.
Why does my billing statement show I am delinquent when I know the payment is directly withheld from my paycheck?
Your billing statement only shows payments received through the date of printing. If your child support payment was received after the first day of the month in which it was withheld, it will be reflected on the next billing statement and any interest accrued based on this payment will be credited to the legal date in which it was collected.
What is Child Support?
Child support is money paid toward your child's living expenses and health insurance.
Can I still open a child support case even if the other parent has been gone a long time?
Yes, but the longer the parent(s) are gone the harder it may be to find them.
Can I get support if I'm not sure who the father of my child is?
No. Paternity (a legal determination of who the father is) must be established before the child support can be ordered. Paternity gives your child many rights, including child support, access to medical records, government benefits, and more.
