Which cases are handled and what is the fee?

For any new or modified support order entered on or after January 1, 1995, the District Court Trustee will automatically provide enforcement services. A mandatory fee of 5% will be deducted from support collected to defray the expenses of the office. In most instances, the value of the services provided will exceed the cost. The cost of the 5% fee is divided equally between the parties pursuant to the Kansas Child Support Guidelines.

Support orders entered before January 1, 1995, will not be automatically enforced by the office and will not be subject to a fee. Enforcement services for these cases will be accepted on an application basis. The 5% fee would then apply.

The office will enforce temporary orders of support (1) if requested by a party and statutory requirements are satisfied or (2) counsel for both parties request enforcement.
