Child support, on the other hand, is not only a legal obligation, but also a financial responsibility that parents are expected to pay to help their children, after they have attained the age of eighteen. The amount that the custodial parent will be required to pay will depend upon the type of custody arrangement and the type of support received. For example, child support is usually based on the income of the custodial parent. For example, if the custodial parent is working full time and has an average family income, he will likely receive less child support than if he is working part time and is earning more.
Child support is generally paid for the care of the children of the parents. It is also expected that the custodial parent will continue to pay for housing and medical care for the children of his or her partner.
In order to receive child support, the custodial parent will have to prove that he or she is capable of making payments and will be able to pay for the needs of the children. This can be done through financial statements, income tax returns, and income tax withholdings from bank accounts.
There are several ways that the child support payments may be collected. One way is through court ordered child support garnishment. If you have a high percentage of your paychecks going to the payments, your garnishments will be increased. If your employer does not offer a program that allows you to make partial or monthly payments, you will be required to complete a repayment plan.
Child support is important to help with providing the necessities for your children. This includes food, shelter, clothing, and medical care. However, it is not enough on its own and cannot be used as an excuse for you to avoid paying your taxes. In some cases, the State will sue the custodial parent in order to collect the full amount that has been awarded in child support.
