What's New

August is National Child Support Awareness Month

At the kickoff of National Child Support Awareness Month, the office of Congressional Research Services issued the updated Child Support Enforcement: Program Basics. The report covers the history and the evolution of the Child Support program and provides information about services Child Support provides on behalf of children. Services include parent locate, paternity establishment, establishment of child support and medical support orders, review and adjustment of child support orders, collection of payments, and enforcement of support orders.

New Law Prevents Growth of Past-due Child Support

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.
