On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in child support on Tuesday, January 2, 2018.
For parents who are struggling financially, whether they have custody of their child or are a non-custodial parent, child support can have a significant impact on their lives. We know how hard it can be for some low-income parents to pay the child support that they owe. At the same time, we are also aware of the struggles that custodial parents may face when they do not receive the support they are entitled to. Either way, our law office believes it is crucial for parents to do whatever it takes to fulfill their obligations and access any resources that can help them out.
Low-income parents may have a hard time with child support for different reasons. Sometimes, people in this position lack employment experience or other tools they need to pull themselves out of their long-term situation. On the other hand, some people may be facing temporary or sudden financial hardships after losing their job unexpectedly. Someone going through this could be able to have their order modified, so long as conditions are met. People struggling with financial hurdles often have an incredible amount of stress to begin with and child support can make things tougher, which highlights how critical it is to handle these matters correctly.
In some instances, child support enforcement also becomes necessary. Parents who are having a hard time because they are not receiving the child support they deserve should also explore different options. Our child support section has more material that has to do with child support payments.
