California residents may need assistance for child support issues

Many custodial parents rely on support payments to make ends meet when it comes to providing for their children. However, there are many circumstances that could lead individuals to face child support issues. When these issues arise, finding out how to deal with them could help individuals determine what steps may help them work toward improving their situations. 

It is not unusual for individuals to fall behind on child support payments in California, and this is an problem that is prevalent across the country. It was recently reported that a county in another state is facing considerable support arrears totaling over $11.4 million. It was noted, however, that only $222,000 went unpaid in the month of October of the $1.3 million that was owed. 

It may be difficult at times to determine the exact causes for back child support. Some individuals may not generate enough income to make their payments and support themselves. Other individuals may simply choose not to make payments. Whatever the case, these lack of payments could cause custodial parents to face financial struggles, and non-custodial parents could face serious consequences. 

If California residents are facing hardships when it comes to paying or obtaining child support, they may want to find out more on their legal options. Struggling parents may be able to seek support modifications that could allow them to adjust their agreement terms to a more manageable amount. Conferring with experienced attorneys could help parents on both sides of the issue determine how they may be able to address their hardships.
