The Support Enforcement Division is responsible for representing the State in establishing, modifying, and enforcing child and spousal support orders. The division is comprised of three areas. The Intake area staff screens new applications, prepares files, calculates past due support amounts, and initiates reciprocal petitions to other states. The enforcement area is staffed by support agents who have responsibility to screen for appropriate enforcement action, monitor delinquencies, resolve disputed issues and collect support. The legal area is staffed by attorneys who handle all legal matters associated with the cases including negotiations, hearings, and trials.
