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.
