6of6, it is not likely IRS concerns itself with your back child support, but they will want and get the back state and federal taxes owed, as well as the current taxes owed on your winnings. The back child support enforcement will be the responsibility of the custodial parent and her/his lawyer.
In all fairness, anyone who owes this money should willingly pay it. After all you may have won millions. Besides your children deserve to eat and survive, and your Uncle Sam, like him or not will demand and get his money.
As for how long it takes to collect, I am not sure, but you can bet as you wait for it, any one with a legitimate claim will be waiting for whats due to them.

in P.A. it is 6 to 8 weeks according to their website FAQ.
Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

6 of 6, i know that in illinois it is said to be about six weeks. But, when i won a lot of money (twice) it took four weeks once and then two weeks for the other. so , go figure! I guess , whenever they want to move on it.

Most states crosscheck each winner's name against federal, state, and local agency files before they payout a penny. One Massachusetts Lottery winner of a modest (in lottery terms) $25,000 jackpot received a net check of only $6,000 after the state deducted $19,000 for previous welfare payments made to the player. Further, the state considered him to have earned income of $25,000 and removed him from the welfare rolls, leaving him worse off after he won than before! Other areas commonly checked include: U.S. citizenship status; outstanding arrest warrants or court judgments; federal, state, and local taxes owed; alimony or child support delinquency; student loan delinquency; even outstanding moving violations or unpaid parking tickets. Be aware: your jackpot can pass through many hands before placed in your pocket.
