When your co-parent does not make child support payments

Not receiving the child support payments you are due can lead to severe financial challenges. In turn, this can have a negative impact on your ability to care for your children. Even one missed payment can make all the difference in the quality of life your kids enjoy, and numerous missed payments can be disastrous. Most parents in Maryland already know the effect of missed child support payments. What they often do not know is what can be done to remedy the situation.

When paying child support is difficult, seek professional advice

Taking care of children can be challenging in any situation, but after a divorce, it is even more so. Establishing child support mandates is the government's solution to making sure both parents contribute to the care of their children. However, in an ever-evolving economy, financial hardships can make it difficult for the non-custodial parent to keep up with the payments.

Could a phone app lessen child support tensions?

When Maryland parents decide to end their relationship, the division of parenting time and responsibilities is a chief concern. Once a child custody and child support agreement has been reached, many parents begin to struggle over the financial end of things. Child support is an item of contention among many divorced parents and can make it difficult to create a positive  co-parenting relationship.

Should incarcerated parents receive a child support break?

A controversial child support regulation shift is underway, and has sparked debate in Maryland and across the nation. The change is a product of the Obama administration, and seeks to give incarcerated parents a better chance of avoiding dire financial straits as they finish their prison term and re-enter society. While many feel that the shift gives convicted criminals an undue child support advantage, others believe that the move could help custodial parents receive support payments when the other parent is released from prison.

Maryland child support collections needs some work

Although Maryland is doing a better job of collecting owed child support payments, the state is still not collecting near what it should. According to auditors, Maryland is only collecting less than one-third of the $1.8 billion that is owed by the non-custodial parents. This child support money is needed by the custodial parents to properly care for their children.
