Welcome to the Child Support Lien Network


Connecticut What Happens Next?

  1. A Connecticut Child Support Enforcement Investigator 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Connecticut law provides a 60-day waiting period for administrative remedy, allowing your Claimant due process to contest the State's action at a Fair Hearing.

  1. At the conclusion of the statutory period, if your Claimant is still non-compliant with the Court's order, a Notice of Seizure will be forwarded to you.

    This notice provides the amount due the state 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 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 support. In addition, Congress required all states pass legislation that recognizes each state's administrative authority and powers across state lines. Thus, the States belonging to the Child Support Lien Network are operating under new law in order to discover insurance claim data.
