Overview

The Utah Office of Recovery Services (ORS) is a state agency that provides child support enforcement services. The agency is a part of the Utah Department of Human Services.

The ORS enforces Utah child support orders and collects Utah child support payments from non-custodial parents. The agency also provides services to help custodial parents locate non-custodial parents, establish paternity, and obtain child support orders.

The Utah Child Support Program is administered by the ORS. The program is designed to ensure that children receive financial support from both parents.

Under the program, both parents are responsible for supporting their children financially. Thenon-custodial parent is usually required to pay child support to the custodial parent.

Child support payments are based on the income of the non-custodial parent and the number of children they have. The ORS uses a standard formula to calculate Utah child support payments.

The agency also provides services to help parents with questions about Utah child support or problems with their child support case. Parents can call the ORS Customer Service Line for information about their case or to ask general questions about child support.

The Utah State Courts website provides information about the state court system, including court forms and instructions, self-help resources, and information about specific types of cases. The website also includes an online searchable database of court cases. The Utah Courts Self-Help Center provides information and resources to help people represent themselves in court. The center has information about a variety of topics, including child support. Utah Child Support Guidelines are the rules that courts use to determine how much child support should be paid. The guidelines are based on the income of the parents and the number of children they have.
