Nonpayment of child support may face new penalties

32720597_S.jpgMissouri parents may already be aware that failing to make timely payments for a court ordered obligation can result in the imposition of legal penalties. Child support orders are enforceable by law, and falling behind on payments can result in myriad of troubles. One common repercussion in the state is that a parent who has failed to comply with a child support order for a period of three months may have his or her driver's license suspended. Recently, an unrelated situation has some hoping to change this sentence. 

Candidate's delinquent child support comes to light

101981911_S.jpgMissouri voters may be under the false impression that political candidates are sometimes above the law. This is not the case, because people running for office are subject to the same laws and penalties as everyone else. When it comes to light that a candidate has failed to pay his or her child support, it may cost him or her votes. 

Government's child support error ruins man's vacation

40708501_S.jpgMissouri parents are probably aware that, if they fail to make timely child support payments, they can face serious legal consequences.

Unfortunately, there is always room for human error, and sometimes, the government entities responsible for processing child support payments make mistakes.

42892638_S.jpgMusic fans in Missouri who follow the career of pop music star Britney Spears may recall the struggle the performer faced when her 2007 divorce made headline news. Since then, she has been trying to resolve various custody and child support issues that have arisen regarding her two children. The boys' father, Kevin Federline, is apparently not satisfied with current payment amounts.

Before child support, be informed about paternity

37913327_S.jpgA man's bond with his child can be incredibly strong. For some dads, however, they may have a nagging feeling that the child they are raising is not their true biological child. Other men are willing to live with the uncertainty and try to keep a strong, stable presence in the child's life. However, for Missouri men, this attitude can come with long-term impacts, such as paying child support for a child who is not one's biological child.

Child support enforcement technology coming to all 50 states

10277612_S.jpgIn an effort to reduce spending, the Department of Health and Human Services is asking for funds for technology upgrades.

Child support is key for your child's financial stability

33971679_S (1).jpgRaising children can be expensive, but fear of being the sole financial supporter should not deter Missouri parents from seeking divorce.

However, most judges will take more than just primary custody into account when determining an appropriate payment plan.

Your daycare costs could be included in child support

48495034_S.jpgWorking parents in Missouri likely already understand just how complicated day care matters can be. From finding the right facility to dealing with day care-related illnesses, one of the biggest issues parents face is paying the hefty bill. For divorced parents, this payment can usually be addressed and included in their child support order.

Child support is for the child's welfare and benefit

39649460_S.jpgResearch shows that approximately one-half of marriages end in divorce. Many of these marriages involve children who will be affected by the divorce. In addition, a significant percentage of children born in the United States are born to unwed parents. Based upon these statistics, it is easy to see that there is a great need for child support throughout Missouri as well as the rest of the nation.
