Overview

The Wyoming CSP is judicial in nature, meaning most enforcement actions are taken pursuant to a court order.  Upon request, a Wyoming judge may order a party to pay certain fees/costs related to the civil action.

Policy

Wyoming statutes allow for the Wyoming CSP to recover attorney fees, filing fees, and other reasonable expenses including genetic testing, service of process, and costs.

Attorneys representing the State of Wyoming in child support actions do not request attorney fees.  Attorneys shall request that the non-custodial parent pay the following costs, as appropriate and based upon the action filed:

  • Filing fee1;, see 5.3 Court Fees for details; 
  • Cost of service of process and
  • Genetic testing fee.
