Private Child Support Collection Agencies
Though the Office of the Attorney General provides free child support collection services by county, a custodial parent also has the option to enter into a contract with a private collection agency. These agencies can be effective in helping you collect outstanding child support even if you do not meet the minimum requirements necessary for the state to undergo collection actions. Child support is a crucial part of many divorce cases, but if it is not effectively collected it may limit a parent’s ability to provide for his or her child.
For more information on child support collection and the options you have as a custodial parent, you should contact an experienced legal professional with a thorough understanding of collection procedures.

Collecting Child Support
Child support may be the difference between your ability to adequately provide for your child and struggling to make it through the month. A private child support agency may be able to provide you with the help you need to collect any outstanding payments in an efficient manner. If the noncustodial parent lives out of the state, the Office of the Attorney General may require extensive paperwork to help you collect your support that an independent contracted agency may not. In some cases, this can make a substantial difference. However, the following are some important factors to consider before hiring a private collection agency:
- Free collection services are provided by the state of Texas
- There may be fees associated with a private agency
- Private agencies may not have the same minimum requirements to use their services
- In some cases, private agencies may be able to handle interstate collections more efficiently
The decision of how to enforce child support collection should be handled with careful research and deliberation.
