How to get a child support order?

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

Direct Request: One potential avenue to explore initially is to have a direct conversation with the other parent about child support arrangements. Although this approach may not always yield immediate results, it demonstrates a respectful starting point before considering legal action and encourages open communication between parties.

Division of Child Support Services: Another option available to you is seeking assistance from the Division of Child Support Services to establish a child support order. This governmental agency can provide valuable support and guidance throughout the process. For more detailed information on how to initiate this process, visit their website at

Legal Proceedings: In situations where a Petition for Divorce or Legitimation has been filed, child support matters are commonly addressed during the temporary hearing as part of the overall legal proceedings. This formal avenue ensures that child support issues are appropriately addressed within the scope of the court system.

Each of these approaches offers its own set of advantages and considerations, and the most suitable option for your circumstances may vary. For personalized guidance and support tailored to your situation, don’t hesitate to reach out to Dreyer Law and schedule your free consultation today.
