Enforcement Action

Bucks County Domestic Relations Section takes enforcement when a party does not comply with terms of an order.

To request enforcement for missed support, parties can contact BCDRS directly.

Officers review cases and make decisions on a case-by-case basis.

Provide copies of your medical card to Bucks County Domestic Relations

To request enforcement for unreimbursed medical/dental, daycare costs, tuition and other ordered expenses, contact BCDRS Client Services at 215-340-8068

The outstanding support balance is called Arrears

If you fail to make payments, BCDRS may take any of the following enforcement remedies against you:

Wage Attachment
PA Unemployment Compensation Attachment
Contempt Hearing
Credit Bureau Reporting
Passport Denial
Drivers License Suspension

Recreational License Suspension
Lottery Intercept

Financial Institution Data Match

When making payments in conjunction with a contempt proceeding, same can be made in cash or with a debit card at the DRS payment window between the hours of 8:00 am and 4:45 pm.

No credit will be given for payments made outside the court directly to plaintiff except where specifically ordered by the court. 

It can take years to repair bad credit
