Child Support Enforcement
The Court Process
The Child Support Enforcement (CSE) Program establishes court orders for both child and medical support. It also utilizes the courts to modify existing orders and to enforce support orders when necessary.
Your cooperation in this process is very important to achieving an outcome that will be positive for you and your children. In order to help people who do not have a lot of experience with the court system, we have developed a document to assist you in understanding the process.
The attached document is intended as a resource to give you a brief general overview of how the court process normally progresses for a child support case. However, every case is different and not all cases will proceed in exactly the same manner. Please keep in mind that there may be slight variations in the court procedure between judicial districts.
If you have specific questions, please contact your attorney or the child support worker assigned to your case. This material is not a source of legal advice, and should not be relied upon as such. If you believe you need legal advice, you should consult with an attorney.
