Alaska Child Support Enforcement

After the divorce court assigns Alaska child support, child support enforcement methods may need to be used to help custodial parents collect unpaid child support. If a supporting parent defaults on child support payments, the Alaska divorce court uses the following child support enforcement tactics:

  • Initiation of administrative enforcement
  • Garnishment of wages
  • Liens on property
  • Reporting of arrears to credit bureaus and lending institutions
  • Denial, revocation or limitations on passports
  • Garnishment of accounts with financial institutions
