What agency handles child support matters in Hawaii?
The Hawaii State Child Support Enforcement Agency (CSEA) through the Department of the Attorney General handles all matters related to child support in Hawaii. By accessing this site: http://hawaii.gov/ag/csea, you can learn about child support regulations, and even make online payments! CSEA can help parents establish paternity, locate non-custodial parents, and enforce child support payments.
How can I modify my child support payment?
Modifications to child support can be done one of two ways. First, you can file a motion for a hearing at Family Court. Second, you can request that CSEA initiate the action on your behalf. It may take some time to modify your child support order.
What can you do to penalize a parent who doesn't pay?
CSEA reports delinquent accounts to the credit bureau as allowed by Section 576D-6 of the Hawaii Revised Statutes and Title 5-31-29 of the Hawaii Administrative Rules. In addition, a non-custodial parent who is delinquent in paying Hawaii child support can have their drivers' license suspended, or their passport denied. Additional actions may be taken depending on the situation.
