Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
Contact the CSU Child Support Unit , these are the things they can do to collect here.
If the Payee parent is receiving child support through the Support Collection Unit (“SCU”) then SCU can help collect past due support at no charge to you. They can:
Have the payor’s employer take money directly from his salary before paying
him (called income execution) and send it directly to SCU, who will
then forward it to you.
Have the government send them his state or federal income tax refund,
or a portion of his unemployment benefits.
Have the Department of Motor Vehicles suspend his driver’s license.
Take money from his bank accounts and retirement accounts.
Put liens on his property (like cars and home) so he can’t sell that
property without paying you child support.
Report his late support payments to credit agencies

They have some useful tools they will take his license until he pays, they nuke his credit, they can keep his tax refunds and forward to you.This is a real good one you may catch this every year.
This is the best you can do unless they find out he is working then they can garnish his pay checks and bank accounts.
CSU can work with the judgment here to force him to pay , suspend license, involve credit bureau, etc.
Best you can do here, there is real minimal fee to sign up with them.By federal law they have to take you here.
Here you are talking about deadbeat dads, they generally hide their money, don't have a regular job or work under the table, don't have a mansion in their name, the best you can do here is make their life uncomfortable--you cut off their license, that gets them tickets and inconveniences them.Credit bureau reporting dings their credit makes it hard for them to rent apartment or buy a car, etc.They can get their tax refunds which you cannot do without CSU. Your taxes pay for CSU why not use them..They also have skip tracing to locate them when you cannot by yourself.
You hope they can locate a bank account to garnish through credit bureau.They have tools here to locate deadbeat dads and they are pretty successful at it.
Sing up and give them a bit to get you some money even if it is a tax return.
Those tax refunds are really sweet if he has new significant other and they catch a joint refund.It happens a lot. I used to work child support, they will get you some money here maybe not all at once.
Thanks again I appreciate the chance to help here.I wish you the best I know you need the money for the kids.
I had deadbeat dad that hadn't paid in years, he wrote a $20 check for high school graduation and we levied on his account an took it all.You have to be patient here and persistent , they will get you some money here , it may be in bits and pieces.
I wish you the best here.
If you can positive rate it is always much appreciated.Have a great evening.
