How to Write a Child Support Payment Demand Letter In Nebraska

When you become a parent, one of the biggest concerns you have is ensuring your children are taken care of. But what happens when you and your former partner can no longer agree on how to provide for your children? This is when Nebraska child support laws come into play.

Child support is designed to help with the cost of raising your children after they live in two separate homes. Even though both parents may want what's best for their children, coming to an agreement on child support can be difficult.

If you're finding it difficult to come to an agreement on child support, or if you've already been ordered to receive child support and need help getting payments, DoNotPay can help.

How to File for Child Support on Your Own in Nebraska

If you can't afford an attorney, you may be able to file for child support on your own.

The Nebraska Child Support Enforcement office offers both an online and paper (Form CSE0060) application you can use to file for child support.

You will need the following information to complete the application:

  1. Your personal information, including name, address, employer information, and driver's license number.
  2. The other parent's personal information, including name, address, employer information, and driver's license number.
  3. Your child's information, including name, date of birth, and Social Security number.
  4. Information on any court orders that are already in effect.
  5. Health insurance information for the child.
  6. A Child Support Enforcement Officer will contact you if they need any additional information.

You should not file these forms yourself unless you are certain the other parent will agree with your request for child support or if you qualify to self-represent.

Once your forms have been filed, the other party will be notified. If she or he agrees with your request for child support, a court date may not be necessary. If the other parent disagrees with your request for child support, a court date will be scheduled so both parties can appear in court and present their case.

How Are Child Support Payments Enforced in Nebraska?

Once a child support order has been set, the Child Support Enforcement office may help ensure your child is receiving the support he or she needs.

  • If you are receiving public assistance, such as TANF, food stamps, or Medicaid, your child support payments can automatically be deducted from your ex-partner's paycheck and sent to the state.
  • If you are not receiving public assistance, the Child Support Enforcement office may be able to help you get a wage assignment order. This is an order that requires your ex-partner's employer to deduct child support payments from his or her paycheck and send them to the state.

If your ex-partner falls behind on child support payments, the Child Support Enforcement office may be able to help you get a lien on his or her property so it can be sold to pay off the debt. If your ex-partner owns a business, the child support enforcement office may be able to place a lien on that business's bank account.
