How do I get child support payments from the state though the mother not paying?

Q) How do I go about receiving child support payments from the state every month even though the mother is not paying she is court ordered $214.00 a month and I just had a baby girl last week and really need the child support payments to help provide for my 9 year old son witch I have full custody of and he lives with me and the mother is currently in rehab

A) If the mother is not paying child support you will not be able to get child support payments from the state. The Child Support Enforcement Act of 1984 allows district attorneys to help you collect court-ordered child support from a parent who refuses to pay.
