The Child Support Lien Docket is a registry containing the names
of people who owe past-due child support. Past-due support constitutes a lien against
a delinquent payer's real and titled personal property. The lien is effective as
soon as it has been recorded on the Child Support Lien Docket. To view the Child Support Lien Docket Handbook, click here.
The Wisconsin Department of Children and Families maintains the Child Support
Lien Docket using real-time data from KIDS, Wisconsin's automated child
support enforcement database. The names of payers with a lien and the liens against
them are public records of the State of Wisconsin and are compiled in this docket
for public disclosure to interested parties. For more information click here.
New participants are added to the
Child Support Lien Docket on a monthly basis. The lien amounts
are updated as payments are processed or adjustments are made.
