Child support payments are used to take care of your child. If the child support is a result of welfare then the state took the responsibility and would like to be paid back for caring for your child. If you hold a US passport, the support agency can put a hold on your passport until the support is paid in full.

Unfortunately, I have no experience or insight into this question that is likely to be very helpful. I believe the answer is very specific to the State that is doing the enforcement. To figure this out, I would contact the agency that handles child support collection in your state, if your state has such an agency. At least some states have free services to help collect support. But, as taxes are cut, some of what such agencies can do has been curtailed. If there is an universal answer that applies to all states, I am unaware what it is. If you are trying to extradite, or fear being extradited, by private action, I am unfamiliar with if or how this could be accomplished. Sorry I could not be of more help.
