Welcome to the Child Support Lien Network
Maine Insurance Industry Outreach
We are asking for your participation in an exciting new project that will help the children of Maine receive more of the child support to which they are entitled. In cooperation with the states of Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire and Connecticut, Maine is making delinquent child support obligor information available to insurance companies. This information will be available on a secure Internet website that will allow you easy access when processing insurance claims.
The web site was designed, developed and tested in cooperation with an advisory committee of Rhode Island insurance companies and representatives of other insurance companies across the nation. A pilot test of the web site in Rhode Island has shown that there is money available from insurance claims that should go to children. While initially developed as a New England project, we are hopeful that this site will eventually have information about child support delinquent obligors across the nation.
The enclosed material provides contact information and explains how your company can use this website to assist us in ensuring that child support is paid. Title 19A Maine Revised Statutes Annotated, Section 2357 allows the State of Maine to encumber a judgment or settlement as property of the obligor. This website, which can be accessed at www.childsupportliens.com, contains information about those obligors and will facilitate your company's ability to contact our agency. If child support is overdue, we will send you a legal notice requesting that you withhold delivery or distribution of the funds until you receive notice from our agency that distribution is appropriate.
We are confident that you will find this web-enabled application to be fast, easy to use and a good fit with your company's existing business strategy for technology. Your participation will help us ensure that financial support is a reality in many young lives. On behalf of all the children that will benefit from this program - thank you for your efforts.
