A) I do not have access to specific information about your child support case, such as the processing times for back child support payments. It would be best to contact your local child support office or the agency responsible for processing the payments to inquire about the status of your payment and when you can expect to receive it. They should be able to provide you with more specific information about your case.
The Child Support Enforcement Act of 1984 grants districts attorneys and state attorneys generals the authority to collect back child support on behalf of custodial parents. This and other federal child support initiatives are managed by the Office of Child Support Enforcement within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). Usually you can allow four to six weeks for DCSS to post payments received from the noncustodial parent’s place of employment.
