Enforce Wisconsin Child Support Orders
Learn how to enforce child support orders when the other parent is not compliant
No matter what the circumstances are, the parent who owes child support should do everything in their power to pay what they owe or at minimum, be in touch with the other parent and the courts to explain why they haven't been paying. But a lack of payment and a lack of reason is likely to lead to arrest rather quickly.
The most common form of arrears collecting is in the form of wage garnishment. The court will determine what percentage of wages can be garnished based upon the amount owed in child support.
Intercepting Pension Payments
Under section 49.852 of Wisconsin Statutes the Department of Children and Families may direct the department of employee trust funds to intercept funds to fulfill a child support lien for the obligor.

Suspend or Restrict License
Under Wisconsin Statue 49.857 the Department of Children and Families may restrict, deny renewal, and or suspend licensure of any license granted from the department of safety and professional services.
