Kids support has regretfully been decreasing as more child support claims are filed. Only 17% of child support is collected each year. The remainder of that money never makes its way into a child's life.

Searching for Ways to Collect Kids Support

If you've tried unsuccessfully to recover your child support money using state resources, we've outlined a few tips that may help in your mission.

The following paragraphs may give you some ideas you haven't tried.

Communicating with your government officials is always a positive way of getting your message out. You can write letters, make a phone call or even send an e-mail about your child support claim and what it means to your family. Someone may eventually act on your request for help.

Do Your Homework
