Addresses and Information on Enforcement of Court Ordered Iowa Child Support Payment.

The Child Support Programs ensure that children receive the court-ordered financial support to which they are legally entitled. It provides services as to establishing paternity, and enforcing child support and medical support orders.

According to the state and federal law, when non-custodial parents fail to pay the child support obligation, they are subject to enforcement measures in order to collect any regular or past-due payments.

Here are some of the tools used by the state to enforce court ordered child support payments:

  • Income withholding
  • Driver's license suspension or revocation
  • Liens on real estate property, vehicles, or other assets
  • Passport denial, revocation or restriction
  • Certifying debts
  • Suspension or revocation of professional and hunting/fishing licenses
  • Income tax offsets
  • Reporting to credit bureaus
  • Non-paying parent may be sent to jail and enter a judgment for past due support.

The court has to examine some important financial documents before calculating child support payments, such as:

  • Gross income of both parents
  • Any paid or received spousal support or alimony
  • Court-ordered support child support for children of other relationships
  • Health insurance costs and extraordinary medical costs
  • Childcare and education costs

It is of your best interest that you provide the most accurate information about your assets and financial information.

Child support orders automatically terminate when:

  • The child reaches the age of 18 and graduates from high school
  • Is emancipated by the court
  • Has a change in legal custody
  • Gets married
  • Enlists in the armed forces
  • Passes away

Support may not terminate if the child has severe special needs which cause him/her to remain dependent.
