The new Child Support Guidelines are finally here and it’s the same for everyone, according to the new guidelines.
And while they may be a bit more complicated than you’re used to, there are a few things you need to know to make sure you’re using them correctly.
Here are the basics.
What is a child support order?
A child support ordering is a set of guidelines set by the Department of Labor that sets out how much a person has to pay for child support to the child’s biological father, and that’s where the “parent” comes in.
While some people may choose to get a child maintenance order on their own, others may have a partner or someone they can share the money with.
The guidelines set out how the child support must be paid and what payment method it must be sent in.
They also set out what kind of payments a person must make.
Here’s a breakdown of what you’ll need to read and the types of child support orders.
What are child support payments?
Child support payments are payments that a person is required to make to get money from the government to support a child.
In this case, the payments are usually made in the form of a check, credit card, or cash.
What kinds of payments are eligible for a child supported order?
The amount of child maintenance that a child must pay is determined by the type of child, the child, and the court, but there are some other things that are considered “child support payments” as well.
For example, a person could be considered to be supporting a child with special needs, a parent with a disability, or a foster child.
Which types of payments do you need a child to make?
If you’re looking for a particular type of payment to make, the first thing you should check out is how much you can legally receive in one payment.
This is important because it could affect your ability to collect child support on your own.

When do you get a parent’s name and address?
A parent’s birth name and/or the address where the child was born is required in order to make a child custody order, so the person will need to provide a birth certificate or other evidence that shows that the child is their own.
The person should also provide a copy of their current or former driver’s license or state ID card, which is often required for a divorce or child support proceeding.
For the first time, there’s a new option to obtain a birth name when you make a payment for child custody.
If you choose to use this option, you’ll have to provide proof of your identity, such as a social security card or other form of identification, as well as a copy that shows the person’s date of birth.
Which payments are child maintenance orders?
Child maintenance payments are set out by the Dept. of Labor and the child has to comply with them before the order is made.
This can include making payments to cover child support, or it can include things like paying for a special needs child or making a payment that is only for the child if there is no other child support obligation.
How do I get the correct information?
There are a couple different ways to get the right information for a court order.
You can send the court a request to get information by calling 1-877-934-8500 or emailing [email protected]
For information on making a child protective order, call 1-800-772-1222 or email [email protected], and for a support order, write a letter to the judge at the child services office.
For a divorce proceeding, call the child custody division at the court and ask for a copy from the parties.
For an emergency, call 911 and tell them you want a child protection order, or call 1.800.342.5669.
For help getting information on other types of orders, check with the local child support division.
What should I do if I don’t know my name and my address?
There’s one last step you should do before you get your order.
Before you go to court to file the order, you should send a copy to the court’s child support administrator.
The administrator will then contact you to get all the information you need.
You’ll then need to complete the paperwork required to file your order, which includes: a certified copy of the birth certificate that you can show to the county child support office
