The divorce process can take some time to resolve, but child support payments still need to continue without interruption. One way this interruption can happen is through child support arrears where one spouse will not make a payment or make a late payment. This can result in interest and penalties being tacked on to the original debt amount.
Child support arrears are a serious matter too. In most cases, the parent who owes child support will be subject to enforcement measures. This can include wage garnishment, seizure of assets and even imprisonment. You can also be on the other side of the issue, which is not receiving court-ordered child support arrears from your former spouse.
Most parents want to provide for their children and ensure that they are looked after, so it’s best to try and resolve any child support arrears as quickly as possible. No matter which side of the issue you are on, payer or payee, it’s never easy.
