Back Child Support
Do You Owe Back Child Support?
Terms like “deadbeat dad” are thrown around all too quickly without considering the circumstances. While there certainly are people who simply do not make child support payments as required, there are also people who fall behind through no fault of their own. There are people who have good intentions, who miss one payment, then two and then it snowballs out of control, and they do not know what to do. Sometimes there are issues of job losses or pay cuts involved. Sometimes there are other financial obligations.
If you have fallen behind on child support payments, it is in your best interest to take immediate action. The lawyers at Hale Ball in northern Virginia can help. With decades of experience on our side, we know the options available to help you catch up on back child support and get back on track with your payments. Is there a basis for modifying the amount that you owe? Can a payment plan be established? We will look into these options, helping you avoid the repercussions of non-payment of child support.
Modification of child support payments may be necessary if there has been a long-lasting change in circumstances such as a change in employment that comes with a major change in the amount you see on your paychecks. Making a modification as soon as necessary can prevent the buildup of back child support.
