Enforcement through Court Enforcement
Court orders the past due child support to be entered as a judgment (an official decision), which will allow interest to accrue to the amount. The money judgment may be filed in the county clerk's office. This creates a lien on all the non-custodial parent's real property located in that county.
Why it Happens?
The money judgment is mandatory if the court establishes that there is past due child support (arrears).
