By the end of this presentation, you should have a better understanding of the process and be able to successfully apply for child support in Oklahoma.

In Oklahoma, fathers are legally obligated to pay for child support. The custodial parent must complete the Child Support Services Application, and the non-custodial parent must provide financial information to DHS in order to calculate the amount of child support due. Once the order is established, the non-custodial parent must make payments on time or face legal consequences. So let’s get started!

Applying for Child Support in Oklahoma

Child support is a crucial part of providing for a child’s needs. In Oklahoma, families can apply for child support services to help ensure that their children receive financial support from the non-custodial parent. The following is a step-by-step guide to applying for child support in Oklahoma.

Step 1: Gather the Necessary Information

The first step in applying for child support in Oklahoma is to gather the necessary information about the custodial and non-custodial parent. This includes their full legal names, Social Security numbers, addresses, and dates of birth. It is also important to have information about any other children the non-custodial parent may have.

Step 2: Decide How to Apply

The next step in the process is deciding how to apply. In Oklahoma, there are two options: applying online or applying in person. Applying online is the most convenient option, as it is quick and easy. Applying in person requires the custodial parent to visit a local child support office.

Step 3: Submit the Application

Once the custodial parent has gathered all the necessary information and decided how to apply, they can submit the application. If applying online, the application can be found on the Oklahoma Department of Human Services website. If applying in person, the application can be found at the local child support office.

Step 4: Wait for a Response

Once the application is submitted, the custodial parent should wait for a response from the child support office. The office will review the application and determine whether the non-custodial parent is eligible for child support. The custodial parent will then receive a notice of the decision.

Step 5: Enforce the Child Support Order

If the non-custodial parent is determined to be eligible for child support, the custodial parent will need to enforce the child support order. This can be done by filing a contempt of court petition or by requesting wage withholding from the non-custodial parent’s employer. The custodial parent can also contact the Oklahoma Department of Human Services for assistance in enforcing the order.

Following these steps can help custodial parents in Oklahoma apply for and receive child support. For more information, please visit the Oklahoma Department of Human Services website.

Once the application is submitted, it will be reviewed by the Oklahoma Department of Human Services. The review can take up to 30 days.

Oklahoma Child Support: How Long Does the Process Take?

Once a court order is issued, the non-custodial parent will be asked to make payments in accordance with the court order. Payments can be made in a variety of ways, including direct deposit, a debit card, or by check. The non-custodial parent will be responsible for setting up the payment plan and making the payments on time each month.

The custodial parent should receive the first payment approximately 30 days after the court order is issued. After that, payments should be received on a regular basis, usually within 7-10 days of the due date.

If the non-custodial parent does not make payments as required by the court order, there are a variety of options available to the custodial parent, including wage garnishment, tax intercepts, and license suspension.

Understanding the timeline for receiving child support payments in Oklahoma is important for both parents. The Oklahoma Department of Human Services provides additional information and resources to help parents understand the child support process.
