When it comes to child support, there are a wide variety of legal issues that can affect parents. For example, a parent may have difficulty fulfilling their child support obligations because of financial problems. On the other hand, a custodial parent may experience hardships because of the other parent’s failure to pay child support. At Johnson & Johnson Attorneys at Law, we work hard to help our clients in Belleville and other parts of Illinois who are dealing with child support issues.
For parents who cannot pay the child support they owe, life can become very difficult. In addition to potential jail time and fines, those who fail to pay child support may have a stigma follow them around. Parents who are raising a child and not receiving the child support they count on may also experience challenges. For example, delinquent payments or unpaid child support can prevent a parent from covering costs such as school supplies, medical bills and everyday expenses.
If you are dealing with these or any other child support complications, it is important to address the situation promptly. Unfortunately, some parents don’t understand how serious their set of circumstances is or wait too long and suffer serious consequences. If you have any questions or concerns, it is imperative to find answers and immediately determine what to do next.
