Child Support Overview
The purpose of the Child Support Enforcement Program is to establish and enforce the support obligations owed by parents for their children and thereby reduce the number of families reliant on public assistance.
The New Mexico Child Support Enforcement Division (CSED) can assist with collecting child support on behalf of New Mexico’s children. CSED can help establish paternity, child support obligations, collect child support and enforce child support court orders. Certain tools can be used to ensure compliance with child support orders such as wage withholding, income tax refund intercepts, driver and professional license suspension, game and fish license suspension and passport denials.
Please let your caseworker know about any safety concerns. CSED may be able to help you access child support services more safely.
