My child is in foster care and the child support money I was receiving from my ex-husband is now going to the State of Wisconsin. I've received an appointment letter stating I must go to the Child Support Agency to establish an order for me to pay. Why must I pay if you are already getting my ex-husbands child support?

Does an adjustment or modification always increase the current child support order?

My order allows me time with my children, but the father of my children is not letting me see them. Can I stop paying support?

I got notice that my taxes were intercepted; however, my recent billing statement doesn't reflect the payment. Where did my money go?

Besides paying my current support, I am making payments on the child support arrears and birth expenses. I am being charged interest on the back support and I just received notice that my taxes are going to be intercepted. Can you do this? What can I do?

I owe back child support and I know my taxes will be intercepted. I am remarried and am concerned you will intercept my new wife's tax return. Will this happen?

I am not getting any child support. I want the court ordered payer in jail but the Child Support Agency just sends him/her a letter. I want him/her arrested. What can I do?

My youngest child turned 18 in February, but doesn't graduate until June. When will my child support obligation stop?

The court ordered payer is remarried. The new spouse makes a lot of money. Can the amount I receive for child support be based on the spouse's income also?
