How Long Will It Take To Receive Support Payments?

Each case is different. The time required depends on several factors, such as the difficulty in locating the noncustodial parent, whether paternity must be established, if an order for support already exists, or if the noncustodial parent lives in another state, or whether the noncustodial parent is employed. It often takes several months to begin receiving support, especially, if the noncustodial parent lives out of state.
