LOOKING FOR ASSISTANCE
Child Support Overview
The purpose of the New Mexico Child Support Enforcement Division (CSED) is to establish and enforce the support obligations owed by parents for their children, thereby reducing the number of families reliant on public assistance.
The 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.
What is Child Support?
The Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) has produced a three-minute video both in English and in Spanish to aid parents in understanding child support enforcement and its processes. Please take the time to review the video to help understand CSED’s processes. OCSE has also produced a webpage, Understanding Child Support, to help parents find basic child support information. Please visit this webpage to find more information.
