North Carolina Child Support Info

In North Carolina, child support cases are handled by the Child Support Enforcement Program (CSE). If you would like to apply for child support, you will need to fill out an application. You can obtain an application form from your CSE office, or you can access it online through the CSE website. In addition to the application, there is an annual non-refundable $25 fee for services that apply to families that do not receive public assistance. These services include:

  • Locating non-custodial parents
  • Establishing paternity
  • Establishing child support obligations
  • Collecting and disbursing child support payments
  • Enforcing support orders

What if the non-custodial parent won't pay?
If the non-custodial parent is not paying the child support amount he or she is obligated to pay, notify the CSE because there are a number of ways that they can enforce child support orders. These include:

  • Collecting payments directly
  • Intercepting tax refunds
  • Wage garnishing

How does wage withholding work?
In North Carolina, support orders are mainly enforced by collecting payments through income withholding. This means that the non-custodial parent's employer deducts a certain amount from each paycheck. This money is remitted to the North Carolina Child Support Centralized Collections who then distributes the money to the custodial parent.
