Maryland Child Support Enforcement

Child support enforcement in Maryland helps the state make sure that children are provided for by both parents. Unpaid child support is a serious problem that state child support enforcement agencies are working hard to fight. Parents who fail to pay child support may face a variety of penalties, including:

  • Interception of federal and state tax refunds
  • Denial of passports
  • Suspension of driver's and professional licenses
  • Garnishment of wages
  • Being reported to credit bureaus
  • Liens placed on real and personal property
  • Being held in contempt of court

State laws outline how Maryland child support is determined.
