OCSS enforces child support orders in many ways. Without going back to court, OCSS can deduct child support from wages, unemployment, workers compensation, or retirement benefits. Depending on the facts of the case OCSS can request passport denial, report to credit bureaus, take tax refunds, and seize bank accounts, lottery winnings, and insurance proceeds.
OCSS can also ask a court to order a payment plan on arrears or revoke driver’s, professional and recreational licenses. OCSS can file a contempt action to ask a district court judge to force the non-custodial parent to pay child support. As a last resort in a contempt action, OCSS can request a district court judge to jail a non-custodial parent who does not pay as ordered.
