What is a family-related court-ordered debt?

In the COURT-ORDERED DEBT CHAPTER, beginning on PG. 650, we explain the types of court-ordered debts you may owe because of criminal justice system involvement. Examples of these debts include: restitution; court fines and penalties; administrative fees; and traffic fines and fees.

There are a other court-ordered debts we do not cover in that chapter because these debts are specific to court orders involving your child(ren) or former spouse. Here we provide you with an overview of family-related court-ordered debts, specifically child support and spousal support.
