States now offer programs to help with child support payments

These days, it often takes the income of both parents to make sure the needs of the family are met. However, when parents separate, the household income can plummet and that can ultimately lead to the children going without basic necessities such as clothing or health care. Fortunately, Arizona has established a system of child support to ensure that the economic needs of children are met when parents split. Noncustodial parents who neglect child support payments can face hefty penalties such as driver's license suspension and even jail time. Most states offer some leniency when certain circumstances prevent parents from making child support payments.
