Enforce an Order
Once a child support order exists, Child Support Services can help ensure it is followed. Federal and state governments provide Idaho Child Support Services several ways to make sure child support is paid.

When a parent is behind in child support payments, Child Support Services attempts to work with the parent obligated to pay support.
Some enforcement remedies occur automatically based on instructions from a judge included in an order. Other enforcement remedies are initiated when payments are not received. Child Support Services determines which of the following actions to use in an attempt to facilitate support for a child based on the court order:
