Nebraska law gives CSE the authority for many enforcement remedies.
The most common methods are:
- Income Withholding
- Credit Reporting
- License Suspension
- Tax Refund Intercept
- Passport Denial
Income withholding is the most effective way to collect child support. Money is taken directly out of the parent’s paycheck. (link to the federal Income Withholding form?)
Past due support over $500 will be reported to the Credit reporting agencies.
If more than three months of past due support is owed these licenses may be suspended:
Driver's (except CDL)
Recreational (hunting, fishing)
Tax Refund Intercept
A parent’s tax refund may be taken if a case is three months behind and more than $500 of past due support is owed.
A parent’s passport may be withheld if more than $2,500 of past due support is owed.
