When is a child support payment due in a Utah divorce?

The due date for child support payments in Utah can depend on where the order for child support originated. Contact us today to schedule a consultation with a Utah divorce and family law attorney in Salt Lake City.

Court-Ordered Child Support in Utah Divorce, Paternity, or Custody Cases

If a child support order was entered as part of a Utah divorce, paternity, or custody case, then the default due dates for child support payments are as follows: one-half of the monthly support payment is due by the 5th day of each month; the second one-half of monthly child support award is due by the 20th day of each month. These are the default due dates under Utah Code 78B-12-112(2). But a Utah divorce court still has the authority to enter an order imposing a different due date.

Child Support Ordered through the Utah Office of Recovery Services

If the child support order arises from Office of Recovery Services action, then monthly child support payments are due on the first day of each month. However, the payments are not considered "past due" for purposes of child support services and income withholding until the first day of the following month.
