Interest Steps

Interest is calculated from the accrual date in the original child support order, unless adjudicated in a subsequent order.  If it is not adjudicated, interest will be calculated through the end of the prior month using one of the following options:

  • Complete one arrearage computation (A/C) for the life of the file, or
  • Complete separate A/Cs for any principal judgments that occurred since the initial order. Adjudicated and calculated interest amounts should be entered in the “Prior Amounts Owed” interest cell.

If interest has been adjudicated, the A/C will begin the month following the order.

Update interest using INTADJ and ITU per the A/C for each balance type.
