Default





Default
(When your case is in arrears)


An Obligor is considered in Default when he/she is behind in payments totaling one month or more of his/her current support obligation. (See Terms and Definitions Information Sheet – Arrears)

When the Obligor owes in excess of one month’s obligation a Notice of Default and potential Action will be automatically generated by SETS. The Default Notice will be sent to the Obligor warning him/her of possible enforcement remedies that CSEA may take to secure the past due support obligation. When a case goes into Default, this is the beginning of the Enforcement Process.

Possible enforcement remedies include, but are not limited to:

  • SETS Automated Reporting to Credit Bureau Agencies

  • Securing additional money to pay off arrears

  • (CSEA may withhold a minimum of an additional 20% of the current support obligation)

  • Driver’s/Professional License Suspension and Passport denial

  • Tax Refund Intercept

  • Motion For Contempt

  • Financial Institution Data Match (FIDM)
  • Please see the additional enclosed
    Information sheets for further explanations
    of possible enforcement actions
