Wyoming Child Support Enforcement

If a parent has not been receiving child support payments that are due towards him from his ex spouse, then he can contact the Department of Family Services. The State of Wyoming has the power to enforce current child support orders, and this can be done when a parent contacts them. Upon contact, they can help with the imposition of payments. Other services include tracking of missing parents by the DFS, in case they have not been making their timely payments. In this regard, various enforcement mechanisms can be used by the DFS such as wage garnishments, in order to ensure that the missing parent, even if he is not located in Wyoming, conforms with the current child support order.

How to File a Complaint

A complaint can be filed by a custodial or non-custodial parent, and this can be done by filing a complaint in Wyoming with the Department of Family Services. Even if the child support order was issued out of state, it is still enforceable across state boundaries due to the enactment of the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act. Child support payments usually have to be made once every week, or twice a month or once every month, in accordance with the wage schedule of each parent. If child support payments have not been made in accordance with child support orders, then a parent can fill out a manual application, provide supporting documents and pay the application fee of $25. This will enable the DFS to take relevant enforcement methods in order to make sure timely child support payments are made.
