Why is child support important in family law?
All parents have the responsibility to care for and support their children. When they wish to be separated or divorced from each other, they won’t worry about their children’s future. The child support issues start there. Eaton family law group is here to solve such lawsuits during your divorce.
Custodial parents can keep their child with them, and the non-custodial parent needs to provide financial support for the child until they reach majority age. If the non-custodial parent fails to pay according to what the court ordered, there are legal options to collect the support amount to fulfill your child’s needs. Before taking action on your own, discuss with a child support lawyer how to achieve your goal of getting a support amount from the non-custodial parent.
There are many options to ask for money from the non-custodial parent if he refuses to pay properly.
