What happens if I don’t pay my child’s child support?
If you stop paying your child’s child support, IRD can order for payments to be made directly from your employer, accident compensation payments and/or bank accounts. If these things don’t work, the IRD might recommend for the receiving carer to take legal action in the Family Court.
If you end up going to Court, the Family Court can use other ways to get money from you if you still won’t pay, like selling your property. If the Family Court believes you might leave New Zealand without paying, they can also issue an arrest warrant to stop you from leaving.
