Why Roanoke Child Support Payments Become Complicated
When one state court grants child support to a custodial parent and that parent relocates to another state, the laws where the support was granted take precedence.
Employment Status Changes
The most common complications related to collecting child support are when the parent stops working or becomes an entrepreneur or independent contractor. Because the parent is no longer employed, there are no wages, which makes the situation more complex.
These problems could be related to delayed or inaccurate information in the Texas child support computer system. This may lead to automatic and unfair penalties for the parent ordered to pay support.
