There are a number of reasons why some people are unable to pay the child support they owe, from unemployment to unexpected financial hurdles. However, In McKinney, TX, and around the country, the consequences for failure to pay child support can be severe. Furthermore, law enforcement officials often focus on child support enforcement, which could lead to the apprehension of those who have warrants for their arrest due to unpaid child support.
Family law courts in Collin County, as well as in other counties across the U.S., order child support payments to ensure the child’s needs are met. Based on factors like custody and income, these arrangements are made so the everyday expenses, medical needs, extracurricular expenses and other costs for raising a child are covered. When parents default on payments, they are not only disobeying a court order, they are also affecting the support and care their child receives.
