One of the enforcement tools that the DCSS is required by state regulation to use in enforcing its cases is the recording of a "judgment lien for installments under a support order". In every case with a support order that is open in our office, an abstract of the support order or judgment is filed with the county recorder's office in as many as three counties.
This recording will occur in the county or counties where the obligor resides, works, and where his / her parents reside. Because the abstracts do not reference a specific property, they do not appear on the initial title search of the property address. They will appear during the final title search of the obligor's name and / or social security number.
