My husband called enforcement and was told that they were in the process of issuing a warrant to his childrens mother for non payment. He hadn't received anything in two months, but checked this morning and there is a large lump sum in the account. Does enforcement give that money and issue her a warrant for that amount if she is arrested? Or does that mean she actually paid something??
She paid. Possibly to avoid jail time. DCSE never advances a payment to the custodial parent, they just work to get the non custodial parent to pay the ordered obligation.

She must have paid. Can you imagine the financial burden on the state of it was to advance back child support. DCSE is there to assist with collection the support. They can also pursue a wage withholding order.

Nothing to add except to agree: she paid. If this (non-payment) is a common occurrence, you might consider asking for an income deduction order, assuming that the paying spouse has a regular job with a paycheck. It's a good arrangement for everyone, in my opinion.
