    Question Can Back Child Support Be Taken From A Settlement

    If my husband has old debts such as child support, when he receives the settlement will they be able to take a certain amount or percentage from the settlement? The support is owed in MN but we live in NC.

    Thanks.

    A child support lien is considered a legitimate deduction from work comp settlement proceeds.

    TiredWife, if your husband legitimately owes back child support then he can expect it to be taken out of his WC settlement. It dosen't matter what state it is owned in nor what state the WC claim is filed/settled in. he can expect a lien on his WC settlement to satisfy the out standing balance of the child support.
