If you’re having trouble getting the child support you’re owed the U.S. Federal government can help.

childrenThe Administration for Children and Families publishes lots of information. While much of it is directed toward social workers and other family support professionals the Child Support Enforcement Handbook is designed to help custodial parents directly.

Some of the chapters in the handbook include:

  • Finding non-custodial parents.
  • Establishing Paternity.

  • Enforcing child support orders across tribal, state and international borders.
