The Child Support Enforcement (CSE or IV-D) Program
“is a joint Federal & State effort to help families establish paternity (when necessary), obtain orders for payment of child support, and secure compliance with child support court orders. One of the goals of the Child Support Enforcement Program is to help families achieve self-sufficiency because the non-payment of child support is a key factor contributing to the impoverishment of children.”
If you are a non-custodial parent in Alabama, you are responsible for paying child support. The amount of child support you owe is based on your income and the number of children you have. You can use the Alabama Child Support Calculator to estimate the amount of child support you will owe.
