What Happens When Unrealistic Child Support Orders Are Given?

Friday, November 04, 2016

It takes plenty of things to raise a child, including money and time. Raising a child, in general, is a tough task to handle, but raising a child alone is tougher. Children have to be supported, and they need the support to come from both parents, not just one parent.

child support enforcement system is in place to make sure that both parents are held accountable for giving their children the support they deserve. Unfortunately, not all parents are able to care for their children in the best way because they do not have the financial means to do so. When the parent, usually the father, is unable to pay child support, the system usually fails them.

A parent who has the financial means to take care of their children but they simply refuse to do so deserve to have the courts involved to collect payments. However; it is not always that simple. There is a large percentage of uncollected child support payments that are owed by non-custodial parents who have no income or a small amount of income.

If a non-custodial parent is incarcerated, the child support arrears will continue to climb higher. As those arrears will continue to climb, it will be extremely difficult for the parent to pay them back. When the parent is ever released from jail, it will be difficult for that parent to earn the income from a job because there may be few job prospects.

When the non-custodial parent is handed a child support that he cannot pay, it does not do anyone any good. The child will not receive the child support payments and the father will have to face the unfortunate consequences of not having the financial means to pay.
