Information and resources available on the North Carolina Child Support Enforcement website includes the process for filing a child support claim, the forms for disputing a child support claim case, details about how to make payments, and options to contact the Clerk of Court Office. It also offers separate portals for parents and employers to manage payments and arrears, as of 2015.
The North Carolina Child Support Enforcement website features three distinct sections, offering support and tools for parents receiving child support, parent's paying child support, and the employers of the noncustodial parent making the payments. The custodial parent portal offers tool for verifying the status of a child support claim, reviewing the amounts owed according to current court filings, and details about how to continue the claim filing process. Similarly, the portal for the noncustodial parent contains the same tools for verifying the delivery status of payments and individual payment amounts along with information on the various court proceedings involved in the process.
The employer section of the site offers a wealth of information explaining the state's wage-garnishing program for making child support payments, wherein the employer withholds a portion of each paycheck and electronically transfers it into a separate account. This account then disperses the money to the custodial parent according to the payment periods and court rulings. It also includes the appropriate remittance forms for the process and documentation for establishing the procedure for new employees.
