Welcome to the Child Support Lien Network

What Happens Next?

  • A New Jersey Lien/Levy Specialist will contact you by forwarding a “Notice to Withhold Insurance Assets”.

    • A notice of the State’s action will also be sent to the Claimant to provide him/her with due process. New Jersey law provides a waiting period in which he may request an administrative hearing to contest the State’s action.

    • Your company should hold the funds for disbursement until you receive a “Notice of Seizure of Insurance Assets” or Release of the State’ s Lien.

  • At the end of the waiting period or after the hearing decision is rendered, you will be sent either a “Notice of Seizure” or a “Notice of Release”. The “Notice of Seizure” will provide the amount of unpaid child support and instructions on how and where to remit the funds.

All states have new administrative lien and subpoena powers enacted into law by the U.S. Congress in 1996. State Child Support Agencies can issue subpoenas administratively to any person, business, or entity to determine assets and to access personal information belonging to persons who owe child support. States can issue liens and levies administratively against the assets of delinquent parents in order to collect past due child support. In addition, Congress required all states to pass legislation that recognizes each state’s administrative authority and powers across state liens. Thus, the States belonging to the Child Support Lien Network are operating under new law in order to discover insurance claim data.
