Establishing and Enforcing a Court Order
Establishing a Court Order
Child Support Services uses both administrative and judicial procedures to establish a child support order.
We will not establish retroactive support (the period before you entered your court order). You would need to pursue this on your own or with the help of an attorney.
Enforce an Existing Court Order
Jefferson County will enforce court-ordered child support obligations until all obligations are satisfied.
Alimony (spousal maintenance) will be enforced when it is included in the child support order and current support is still owed.
The approach taken in your case is at the discretion of the child support staff and will be determined on a case-by-case basis to effectively serve you.
If you already have a child support order and would like to have it reviewed for change, contact the child support specialist in charge of your case. More >>
