Payments & Collection Program

Addresses and Information on Enforcement of Court Ordered South Dakota 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
  • Liens on real estate property, vehicles, or other assets
  • Driver's license suspension or revocation
  • Passport denial, revocation or restriction
  • Income tax offsets
  • Certifying debts
  • Suspension or revocation of professional and hunting/fishing licenses
  • 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
  • Court-ordered support child support for children of other relationships
  • Any paid or received spousal support or alimony
  • 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.
