A: Good Morning,

Yes, If you owe back child support (arrearages) then the child support division can place a lien on a personal injury settlement.

A: If you are behind on child support payments, then yes, the state may assert a lien against your insurance claim in order to recoup the overdue child support. This is only one of the many options the court has in enforcing child support.
