What you Need to Know About Indiana Child Support
When a family breaks up, the children are still entitled to the love and care that they received when their family was a single unit. The Indiana Child Support Bureau helps enforce child support orders to ensure that children of divorce receive the benefits they have a right to. They also offer many services related to child support, including:
- Locating a non-custodial parent
- Establishing paternity
- Collecting current and delinquent payments
- Enforcing medical care and financial support
- Reviewing and modifying support orders
How do I receive child support?
In Indiana, child support is processed through the Child Support Bureau. You may receive child support by check, direct deposit, or it may be deposited for you onto the Hoosier Works MasterCard – a commercial debit account (CDA).
The non-custodial parent isn’t paying. What can I do?
If you are not receiving your child support payments because the non-custodial parent has stopped paying, there are many steps that the Child Support Bureau can take to recover your money, including wage garnishment, federal tax offset (intercept), state tax offset (intercept) and more.
