Overview

While the Wyoming Child Support Program has a number of enforcement remedies available including judicial and administrative actions, sometimes the most effective enforcement tool may be the simplest.  A “dunning” letter notifies a non-custodial parent in a non-threatening manner of his or her child support obligation,states the current child support obligation, if any,and the child support arrears, and explains the judicial ramifications of continuing not to pay. The dunning letter may also be used as evidence in District Court to show that a non-custodial parent is aware of the debt.

Policy

If the case worker determines a dunning letter should be sent to the non-custodial parent, the case worker will:

  • Generate the dunning letter from POSSE; 
  • Mail the dunning letter to the non-custodial parent’s last known address; and
  • Monitor for payment by the non-custodial parent.

If the non-custodial parent does not contact the District CSE Office or make a child support payment within 30 days, the case worker will review the case for other enforcement remedies.
