Child Support and Fiscal Emergencies

Posted by Elise Buie | Aug 07, 2015 | 0 Comments

An emergency situation may make it difficult for someone to pay child support on time for a month, or even two, but when it it happens long enough for tens of thousands of dollars to be owed, the state may take action. They may even arrest the deadbeat parent for non-payment.

The child support enforcement agency in North Carolina proudly talked about an arrest they made. They set the bail bond amount of the man they arrested to the exact amount of child support owed. Clearly, North Carolina is not happy with this individual.

If a child support case goes this far and you're wondering about how you will get your cash, you should speak with DCS immediately to find out what actions they are taking. You may also want to speak with a family lawyer about the situation to understand the law and what you can do to force further action. All parents must pull their weight to take care of their children. Don't let a deadbeat take advantage of you. It's not good for your children or for you.

If you have family law questions and you live in the state of Washington, call Elise Buie Family Law Group, PLLC. We can help.
