Losing sleep over back child support

There are many different reasons why falling behind on child support payments can be tough, whether a non-custodial parent fears that traveling will be impossible due to an inability to apply for a passport or someone is worried about being arrested. Unfortunately, these concerns can cause people to lose sleep at night, which might carry over into other negative consequences, such as poorer performance in the workplace. If you are a parent who is in this position, it is critical for you to explore your options and try to make the situation better.

With financial penalties, time behind bars, and a social stigma, life can be very hard for a parent who has not paid child support. Fortunately, there may be certain ways this dilemma can be prevented, such as planning ahead and being financially responsible. In the event that you have already fallen behind, whether your job was terminated, or you are struggling with a health issue, you may be able to either set up a payment plan or have your child support order modified. Regardless of your circumstances, it is important to take your child support responsibilities seriously and explore different options that could be available to you even if you are not able to make payments on time.

While back child support can cause a tremendous amount of stress, taking care of these responsibilities can be very relieving and give non-custodial parents a fresh start. If you follow the link to our law firm’s divorce section, more related to this side of family law can be reviewed.
