How to Demand Child Support Payments on Your Own

Although single parents acknowledge that collecting child support would substantially help their financial situation and enable them to provide more for their child, it can be scary and intimidating to try to demand child support payments by oneself. If you'd like to give it a go, here are a few required steps that apply to most situations:

  1. List the date at the top of the page.
  2. Formally address the letter to the parent who owes child support.
  3. Include a sentence or paragraph with a reminder about the amount of child support owed.
  4. List a date the payment must be paid to you, give at least 14 days.
  5. End with a sentence that states legal action may be taken if no payment is received within this time window.

Once your letter is drafted, you can send it to the appropriate party and await a reply. If the recipient fails to respond within the designated window, you should contact a local agency or law enforcement department that can help you enforce your child support orders. Government agencies have several tools they can use to force child support payments, including income withholding, revoking licenses, freezing bank accounts, and more.

Although it is entirely possible to write a child support payment demand letter on your own, many people feel too anxious or overwhelmed by the process and end up forgoing child support payments as a result. With DoNotPay, you don't have to face the situation alone, and we can handle the entire letter-writing process for you with just a few key pieces of information.
