Maryland Child Support Enforcement Program
Child support is governed. Although it may seem like it but its not just something you can pay if you want to pay. Knowing how much you owe or might owe is critical to know if you want to continue to see your family.

- Collecting and sending off the money

What Happens When You Don’t Comply With the Maryland Child Support Enforcement Program?
The organization has power to do many things. They can garnish wages if you’re not paying and work with your employer to make sure you don’t receive the amount you owe. This also includes withholding tax refunds, and even keeping them.
In Maryland they have the ability to contact the credit bureau to make sure it leaves some damage on your credit. One tactic that shocks many folks around Maryland is their ability to get a driver’s license suspended.
The organization has been forced to get stricter over the years with many parents making the decision to neglect child support.
