    Default How to Collect Back Child Support Overpayment

    My question involves child support in the State of: WV
    It was determined that I overpaid my baby mama an extra 1500.00 in CS.
    The CS agency said that I would have to collect it from her.

    She has already refused to pay me back.

    Do I do this through family court or small claims?

    Small claims might not allow these sort of cases - it's worth asking the question though. Check your small claims court rules.

    If that fails, you have a choice. Either try and get the family court to compel Mom, or ask CSE if you can have the amount applied to any current obligation or arrears.

    If your obligation is satisfied and there are no arrears, it does narrow your options somewhat; getting an order compelling Mom to pay is one thing. Get it enforced is another thing entirely.
