PART 2. LIENS AGAINST PERSONAL PROPERTY
FOR OVERDUE SUPPORT.
§48-14-201. Arrearages stand by operation of law as judgment
against support obligor.
When an obligor is in arrears in the payment of support which
is required to be paid by the terms of an order for support of a
child, an obligee or the bureau for child support enforcement may
file an abstract of the order giving rise to the support obligation
and an "affidavit of accrued support," setting forth the
particulars of such arrearage and requesting a writ of execution,
suggestion or suggestee execution. The filing of the abstract and
affidavit shall give rise, by operation of law, to a lien against
personal property of an obligor who resides within this state or
who owns property within this state for overdue support.
