State-Based Child Support Enforcement

Child support enforcement has enough loopholes that many parents are dodging their financial responsibilities. Though court orders mandate a monthly payment you may not be receiving the money you need to raise your family. If the court can't make it happen, how are you supposed to ever collect that money?

There are several private organizations that are dedicated to the collection of unpaid child support. These agencies are not sponsored by state or federal governments. They work on a contingency fee basis meaning you don't pay them a dime until they start collecting your earned money.

Do I Qualify for Private Assistance?

To find out if you qualify for the help of child support enforcement agencies you can fill out an online questionnaire about your child support situation. This assistance is applicable if the support obligation has already been established by the court. These agencies work to collect past due payments, not establish cause for child support.

You may wonder how these services are different from state agencies. In a state environment you are competing with the attention of the thousands of other cases occurring in the state. Your case may not be given the reasonable or necessary effort needed to collect on overdue payments. Private agencies attack the problem at full speed and often have a recovery rate of more than 70%.
