There are many legal issues that people deal with following a divorce, but child support can be especially challenging. Not only can child support impact a parent required to make payments, but it can also pose challenges for someone who is supposed to receive payments as well. Moreover, there are a number of issues related to a person's job with respect to child support and we will look at a few in this blog post.
For starters, if you fall behind on child support you owe your wages may be garnished. This can be especially troubling for workers and it is crucial to do what you can to make payments on time. Moreover, making payments can be tough for some people, such as those who have recently lost their job or have had their hours cut. When this happens, it might be smart to look into child support modification, which can make child support payments more compatible with a non-custodial parent's income.
Aside from these matters, child support can lead to high levels of stress, which can also affect an employee's performance at work. For all of these reasons, it is crucial to carefully handle any child support issues that arise and prevent problems by staying current on payments. That said, our law office knows that each situation is different, and people may run into a number of problems whether they are expected to pay or receive child support.
