Child support is a court-ordered payment made by one parent to the other to help provide for the financial needs of their children. The amount of child support is based on a number of factors, including the income of both parents, the number of children, and the cost of living in the area.
Child support is important because it helps to ensure that all children have the financial resources they need to live a healthy and productive life. It can help to pay for things like food, clothing, shelter, education, and medical care. Child support can also help to reduce the financial burden on the custodial parent, who is typically the parent who has primary physical custody of the children.
There are a number of ways to enforce child support payments. If a parent fails to pay child support, the other parent can file a motion with the court to have the parent’s wages garnished, their driver’s license suspended, or their passport revoked. In some cases, the parent may even be jailed for contempt of court.
If you are a parent who is owed child support, there are a number of resources available to help you enforce your rights. You can contact your local child support enforcement agency or a family law attorney for assistance.
