An administrative child support action is different from a circuit court child support action. An administrative child support action is based on your paternity having already been established by the appearance of your name on a child’s birth certificate, even if you were never married to the mother or have ever had a court order confirming your paternity. An administrative action establishes child support is a more automatic way than a regular court case.
If you are served with administrative child support paperwork, you should immediately file a petition in circuit court to have your child support case, non-paternity claims, or any related matters heard in full before the Court! Serving the Department of Revenue with that petition will HALT the administrative child support process! This can even be done by plain U.S. MAIL.
