How to Demand Child Support on Your Own

If your ex owes back child support payments, you can try to get them to pay on your own.

  1. Speak to your ex. You can try an information conversation regarding child support. Try to remain respectful, but be direct. If they realize you are serious, they may stop dragging their feet and start paying in order to avoid legal action.
  2. Send an official letter of demand. If your ex is uncooperative, you can send a formal letter of demand.
  • Make sure the letter includes a complete outline of all payment amounts owed, due dates, their legal obligation to make these payments, any legal action you or the state of New Mexico can take against them if they do not pay, and what consequences they may face if they continue to neglect their obligation to pay.
  • Sign and date the letter
  • Send your letter by certified mail and request a return receipt. This ensures that they must sign to receive the letter and you will receive the signature card back as proof.
  1. Contact the Child Support Enforcement Division. They can help you begin the legal process of pursuing enforcement of child support.
