Child Support Advice: What Should You Know?

We understand that child support laws are not the same in every state, but we wanted to offer some tips and advice for anyone who has child support obligations.

If You Do Not Pay, There Will Be Consequences

Various creative things have been implementing to ensure anyone who is paying child support meets all of those obligations. Many people are aware of the type of criminal penalties one may face, but they may not be aware of the other consequences, such as the following:

  • Suspension of driver's license
  • Garnished wages
  • Tax refund deductions
  • Cancelled passports

You May Have To Pay More

If you ever have an increase in income and the other parent finds out, you may be forced to pay more. If you have to show your monthly gross income and it has significantly increased since the last time, the amount of child support payments you payment can be increased.

Your Child Support Payments Can Decrease

As mentioned earlier, you may not always pay the same amount for child support. If you find yourself facing financial difficulties, child support payments can also be modified in these situations. However, you will need to show proof that you have a big change in income. If you simply say you did not make that much in a particular month, that will not be enough.

Child support payments and other obligations can be difficult to understand, but one of the things you should never do is stop paying child support on your own. If you have questions or concerns, you should seek the advice of the court. Contact us today for more information.
