Effective October 1, 2018, the fee for full Child Support services is increasing in response to a change in federal law. The fee for limited services is also increasing as a state law requires the fee for limited services to be greater than the fee for full services. Notice was sent to more than 26,000 parents who could be affected by the change.

Beginning Jan. 1, 2018, a new state law takes effect that aims to prevent the accumulation of large amounts of past-due child support owed by incarcerated parents. The 2017 North Dakota Legislature passed Senate Bill 2277, which terminates monthly child support obligations of parents who were previously ordered to pay child support under North Dakota court orders and then sentenced to incarceration for 180 days or longer.
