Mississippi Child Support Enforcement

In order to enforce child support payments in Mississippi, a parent may be able to get assistance from the Department of Human Services Division of Field Operations.  In order to obtain assistance, a parent must provide information to the Division of Field Operations so that they can make a determination as to what, if anything they can do to enforce the order.

How to File a Complaint

In Mississippi, parents are obligated to pay child support in accordance with any child support order issued by any state in the United States. Child support orders can be enforced across state lines. When a parent fails to pay, Division of Field Operations may be able to take actions to make sure those payments are made.

A parent seeking enforcement first needs to fill out an application with the Department of Human Services Division of Field Operations to provide information about the order, the non-paying parent and the children.
