Child support and your passport

If you are an avid traveler or leave the country from time to time in order to conduct business, it is important to be aware of the different ways that your divorce could affect your ability to leave the country. During a divorce, you might find that the process interferes with your ability to go overseas or even travel within the U.S. due to time constraints or stress. However, there are other reasons why splitting up with your spouse could affect your traveling. For example, you may run into problems if you are unable to pay child support.

Many different family law matters can create challenges for couples, especially if they have kids. From custody to child support, custodial and non-custodial parents may run into a number of difficulties. However, some parents struggle with keeping up on their child support obligations, especially if they have lost a job or are facing monetary problems for another reason. Unfortunately, if you become delinquent on your child support, you might experience a number of troubles in life, from the threat of arrest to a damaged reputation. In fact, you might not even be able to apply for a passport or could have your passport revoked.

Being unable to leave the country due to passport problems which stem from back child support can be incredibly stressful, but there are different ways you may be able to prevent or address this, such as child support modification. Our page on parental responsibilities has additional material related to paying child support.
