The first thing to remember is to never withhold parenting time from the other parent unless the child is actually put in danger. The payment of child support has no bearing on parenting time rights and the court will frown upon a parent that has willfully withheld parenting time. North Dakota has a specific entity created through the North Dakota Department of Human Services called “Child Support Enforcement” that deals with child support payments that are in arrears. There are many ways to collect child support that is owed to you including requiring the parent’s employer to withhold child support payments from the parent’s paycheck.
