The FOC or State can initiate a lien/levy process against real or personal property, and/or financial assets for collection of child support. It is a two-step process for real or personal property. The one step process for financial assets is done through the State's centralized enforcement process.
License Revocation - Professional licenses, driver's licenses and hunting and fishing licenses can be revoked for non-payment of child support.
Federal and State Tax Refund Offset Program - If an arrearage threshold has been met, both federal and State tax refunds can be intercepted to pay support arrears.
Consumer Credit Reporting - The statewide child support computer system (MiCSES) automatically triggers a report to a consumer credit reporting agency if two months of arrearages exist.
Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO)/Eligible Domestic Relations Order (EDRO) - These are support orders against a pension account for a private company (QDRO) or a State pension plan (EDRO). They can be issued for current support or arrearages.
