If I have to enforce an order from North Carolina or from another state, can I get help?
There may be a couple of ways to get help to enforce an order from North Carolina or from another state. If you request it, you may get help from your local child support enforcement agency.1 Also, the district attorney may represent you if you have brought a criminal action against the person who owes you support or in certain other cases. Lastly, you may get your own attorney.2
