How to get a child support order?

Wondering how to secure a child support order? Here are three avenues you can explore:

Direct Request: As a first step, consider approaching the other parent directly to discuss child support arrangements. While this approach may not always yield results, it’s a courteous initial step to take before considering legal action, and it promotes open communication.

Division of Child Support Services: You have the option to enlist the assistance of the Division of Child Support Services to establish a child support order on your behalf. For more comprehensive details regarding this process, you can access valuable information at

Legal Proceedings: In cases where a Petition for Divorce or Legitimation has been filed, child support matters are typically addressed during the temporary hearing as part of the legal proceedings.

Each of these routes offers distinct advantages and considerations, and the most suitable option for you may depend on your unique circumstances. Give Dreyer Law a call today to schedule your free consultation.
