Child support orders are judgments of the court. Even when prepared by the Family Support Division, child support orders are filed with the court and eventually treated as court orders. Many people are unaware that child support obligations accrue interest at the rate of one percent of any past due amount (arrearage) each month. That's twelve percent annual interest, which can obviously rack up quickly on a child support arrearage.
Enforcement of child support orders is much more robust than enforcement of most other types of money judgments. Child support orders are not dischargeable in bankruptcy, and certain state agencies exist, in large part, for the purpose of enforcing child support obligations. Child support orders can be enforced by bank account garnishments, tax refund levies, wage withholding orders, civil contempt court orders, driver's license suspension and even criminal charges.
