Child support program offers help to those behind on payments

For parents in Arizona and across the nation, the needs of children are a primary concern. When parents separate, a shock is often felt as two incomes are suddenly reduced to one. To offset this loss, child support laws were established in all states. Unfortunately, sometimes the noncustodial parent cannot make child support payments, which can eventually result in jail time. Instead of throwing offenders in jail, one state uses a program to help those behind on payments.

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.

Children suffer the most from unpaid child support

Fortunately, governments in every state across the country have established systems of support for children whose parents have separated. Child support is money paid from the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent in order to meet the financial needs of their children. Although Arizona parents who have separated may no longer be obligated to each other, they remain obligated to support the needs of their children. Child support is court-ordered, and strict penalties exist for those who choose to neglect child support payments. These penalties can include wage garnishment, suspension of driver's license and even extensive jail time.

Child support payments are being updated in several states

A divorce or split means that a family potentially goes from two incomes down to one. Child support payments are court-ordered payments that are made periodically by the noncustodial parent to the custodial parent to support the needs of the children such as education, health care, food, clothing and shelter. Child support systems were established in Arizona and across the country to ensure that children do not suffer the economic impact that often comes with the end of a relationship. However, since the U.S. economy has grown exponentially in the last 20 years, many states are in need of updates to the way child support payments are calculated.

Neglecting child support could mean harsh penalties

In Arizona and across the country, a system of support has been established for children whose parents have split. Child support laws require the noncustodial parent to provide financial support for the benefit of children. These funds are primarily to be used to pay for necessities such as shelter, food, clothing and health care. However, it is not uncommon for the noncustodial parent to neglect these payments. Nonpayment of child support not only has a negative impact on children, but it can also mean very strict penalties for those refuse to pay child support.

More women are paying child support these days

An interesting trend is taking shape in Arizona and across the country. In recent years, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of women paying child support. Traditionally, men earned higher incomes and were noncustodial parents, so they were required to pay child support to mothers. Child support laws were put in place in every state to make sure that children get the financial support they need. More women are being ordered make these payments, since women today occupy higher paying positions and make more money than they used to.

Several arrested for negligent child support payments

A top priority in the lives of Arizona parents should be the well-being of their children. For a number of reasons, parents may decide to split. In today's world, it often takes financial support from both parents to meet the needs of children, and single parents often struggle financially to support their children, regardless of income. For this reason, child support laws have been established across the country. Those that break these laws and neglect to pay child support can face hefty fines and even jail time.

When parents end a marriage they may no longer obligated to each other, but they still have an obligation to support their children. Child support laws were enacted in Arizona and across the United States to ensure that children get the financial support they need. Even celebrities must abide by these laws. Actor Jeremy Renner recently made headlines when he and his ex-wife reached a new child support agreement.

Supplying basic the needs of children such as food and housing can get quite expensive in this day and age, especially for single parents. In order to see that the needs of the children are being met, noncustodial parents are often required by law in Arizona to pay child support to custodial parents. However, it is not uncommon for discrepancies to arise regarding the details and amounts of these payments.

Those delinquent on child support payments may face jail time

Parents have a duty and obligation to support their children. When parents separate, child support laws ensure that the financial needs of the children are met. In Arizona and across the country, the penalties for unpaid child support can be steep. Refusal to pay child support can have negative consequences for the noncustodial parent; however, it often affects the children the most.
