Child Support Offsets
The Office of the Attorney General (OAG) has the authority to hold all payments due to a child support debt and determine the application (release or offset) of these payments.
The OAG uses reason code 020 when releasing a held warrant for offset against delinquent child support debts.
When warrants are released to the OAG for offset, they are deposited into Treasury by the OAG instead of the Comptroller’s office. The OAG will also issue any negotiated overage payments that are necessary as a result of their offsets.
