This page is all about collecting child support, including the importance that interest pays in the calculus about how aggressively you want to work to collect child support.
The whole world of child support collection has changed during the last two or three years, and more changes are in the works. Parents who don’t pay their child support can now have their drivers’ license suspended, their hunting, fishing, and professional license suspended, and even be thrown in jail.
Your main task if you’re trying to collect child support now is to figure out which of the many remedies you want to pursue:
- Collect it yourself
- Hire a child support collection agency
- Hire a lawyer
- Get social services to do it
The key is that the government is taking the collection of child support more seriously now than at any time in history. Deadbeat parents really are paying.
