Child Support

The Child Support Division of the Madison County District Attorney’s Office is under contract with the Alabama Department of Human Resources to provide the following legal services involving child support: establishment of paternity; establishment of an order of support; to seek modification of an existing order; establish and/or enforce a medical support obligation; and establishment of an income withholding order on all child support cases.
We can register and enforce a support order from other states if the non-custodial parent now resides in Madison County, Alabama. We prosecute cases for non-support and are able to collect the current child support along with payments toward the arrears through income withholding, garnishments, liens, and tax offset. We are not, by contract, allowed to deal with issues of custody and/or visitation.
