New York State Child Support Form: Order - Entry of Money Judgment. "According to the federal Office of Child Support Enforcement, in 2006 11.1 million obligors owed more than $105 billion in arrearages. Most child support arrears are owed to the state as compensation for welfare payments, and the primary reason for the increase in child support arrears is the fact that many states have begun to assess interest on them. Collecting these monies has been quite difficult, in large part because nationally an estimated 70 percent of unpaid child support is owed by parents who earn less than $10,000 a year."
