Child Support Collection

Ways to SecureĀ Child Support Payments

Income Execution

Income Execution (IEX) is the process by which payments for current and/or overdue support are deducted from a noncustodial parent’s wages or other income by the noncustodial parent’s employer or income payor.

Unemployment Insurance Benefits (UIB) Intercept

Noncustodial parents who are receiving unemployment insurance from the New York State Department of Labor will have current and/or overdue child support payments automatically deducted from their UIB payments.

Income Tax Refund Intercept (Federal and State)

A delinquent noncustodial parent’s federal and/or State income tax refund may be intercepted to pay overdue child support.

Credit Bureau Submission

The names of delinquent noncustodial parents may be submitted to the major consumer credit reporting agencies. As a result, the noncustodial parent may have difficulty obtaining a loan or other forms of credit until the overdue child support is paid.

Lottery Intercept

New York State lottery winnings may be intercepted to pay overdue child support.

Property Execution

Financial assets, including bank accounts, may be seized in order to satisfy overdue child support.

Driver's License Suspension

New York State driver’s licenses may be suspended for a delinquent noncustodial parent.

Passport Denial

The New York State Division of Child Support Enforcement and the U.S. State Department work together to prevent delinquent noncustodial parents from renewing or obtaining a passport.


Liens may be filed against a delinquent noncustodial parent’s real estate or personal injury claims or awards in order to collect overdue child support.

Tax Referrals

The names of delinquent noncustodial parents are sent to the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance (DTF). DTF can then apply specific tax collection remedies to collect the overdue child support.
