When are passports denied over back child support?

Parents who struggle to pay their child support may have diverse concerns, such as losing their tax refund or facing other penalties associated with unpaid child support. What some may not realize is that unpaid child support can interfere with life in all sorts of other ways, such as making one ineligible to obtain a passport. Moreover, you may be wondering how much unpaid child support one must owe in order to have their passport eligibility revoked. In this post, we will examine back child support and applying for a U.S. passport.

Paying child support as a business owner

For some business owners, the financial consequences of ending their marriage can be tough, whether they struggled with the division of marital property or alimony. Child support payments can also be difficult for business owners for a number of reasons, from figuring out how much they will be required to pay to making payments on time in the wake of financial difficulties. If you run a business, it is important to make sure that you stay current on child support you owe regardless of business-related challenges you may encounter.

Challenges related to unpaid child support

Many different legal issues arise for those who end their marriage, especially if they have children. Custody disputes can be very difficult, but child support can lead to ongoing problems if a parent is unable to pay what they owe or refuses to make payments on time. Daily life can be challenging for a custodial parent who may be unable to buy clothes or school supplies for their child. However, there are also a number of consequences non-custodial parents may run into, which highlights how crucial it is to avoid this predicament in the first place.

The benefits of modifying a child support order

As a non-custodial parent who owes child support, you might have a number of responsibilities on your plate and stressors that arise on a daily basis. If you are unable to pay child support or expect that you will fall behind in the months to come, you could worry about the different consequences of back child support. For example, you may be concerned about being taken into custody, having your tax refund intercepted, or being unable to apply for a passport, among other challenges. For some people, child support modification is a great way to address these issues and it offers a number of benefits.

How do I pay for medical care for my child?

Divorced parents in Pennsylvania have enough to be concerned about without having to worry about how they are going to pay for medical care for their children. In general, the child support order should include healthcare-related expenses, but if it is not enough the court may need to decide who is responsible for the additional payments.
