Child support claims in Alabama are enforced by the CSE Division that helps custodial parents establish paternity, obtain orders for the payment of child support and ensure compliance with existing orders of child support. Child support payments in Alabama will depend on a few factors, including the gross income of both parents, contributions to insurance and daycare, number of children involved, and the existence of other children that the noncustodial spouse is paying support to. In instances where there are multiple orders for support, the amount of support is determined proportionally. Payments made through income withhold are processed by the Alabama Child Support Payment center and that payment is disbursed via check, direct deposit or debit card, depending on the preference of the custodial parent.
