The Hawaii Child Support Enforcement Agency falls under the auspices of the Department of the Attorney General and ensures that both parents contribute to the financial well-being of the children.
All payments are made electronically and disbursed through direct deposit. Those that do not have a bank account for direct deposit will be issued a debit card through the state authorities.
There is an annual fee of $25 assessed by the Hawaii Child Support Enforcement Agency as long as payments have been collected from the non-custodial parent in excess of $500. This fee does not apply to families on public assistance.
The Hawaii child support authorities can take action for the payment of child support and also help custodial parents establish paternity including genetic testing. If you need legal advice and assistance, contact Hawaii lawyers.
