The process below may not apply to everyone, but may provide information regarding some of the steps needed to process your case.
If you already have a court order for child support and have submitted the order with your application to our office, you can expect to receive a legal document titled "Entry of Appearance." This document notifies all parties involved, including the courts and in some cases the attorney, that we are the third party intervenor in the case. Along with an Entry of Appearance, you should expect to receive a letter welcoming you to the program and a legal document titled "Affidavit of Direct Support." The affidavit will help us determine the total arrears (debts that are overdue) due to you and/or the department, depending on whether or not public assistance (county issued benefits) was involved. If the Affidavit of Direct Support form is not provided, our office will not be able to collect past due support that is owed.
Upon determination of the arrears, we will file with the courts a "Motion to Determine Total Arrears Due and for Entry of Judgment." This will also be filed if there are no arrears due. Determination of arrears is necessary to ensure proper enforcement of your order.
After the order has been signed by the courts, your case will be assigned to a child support specialist that will enforce your order. If you have any questions concerning this process, please contact our office at 303-271-4300.
