Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. No this would not show up on a passport check when re-entering the country. The checks which are performed are mainly linked to criminal matters, so for example if you have any outstanding arrest warrants, if you are wanted for anything by the police, if there have been terrorism-related offences, if you are on a crime watchlist, any immigration issues, etc. Non-payment of child support is not a criminal matter, it is a civil one, it is dealt with under civil laws and this is not something which would come to the attention of the immigration authorities when your details are checked on re-entry to the country.
