Connecticut Child Support Enforcement

If parents don't pay the ordered Connecticut child support, the Connecticut divorce law has penalties to collect unpaid child support. Under Connecticut divorce law, the divorce court may use the following penalties for child support enforcement:

  • Withholding income and federal tax refunds
  • Liens against property
  • Contempt of court
  • Suspending driver's, professional and occupational licenses

States have established child support enforcement agencies to help collect the unpaid child support and secure a child's financial future after divorce.
