You can go the Department of Child Support Enforcement in your state and show them the court order. You can also provide any proof of payment for the child support that was received. They can start proceedings for collecting the arrears for you and will inform you of your options to collect the arrears (i.e. garnishment of wages, etc.)

Please let me know if you have any other questions on this matter or require further clarification. Otherwise please hit "ACCEPT", so I may receive credit for my response. Tips and feedback are also appreciated.

Good Luck!
