You would think that after having a child and raising them, that the parent would have no problem supporting their child after a divorce, but they do. There are so many things that can happen to the custodial parent who does not pay child support, which shows that this happens way more than it should. Many times it is because the parent believes that their child support is too high, which sometimes it may be, but in that case you should take the matter up in court to see if you can get it lowered. If you have to pay child support your best choice would be to pay up! There are too many things that can happen to you if you don’t, you can lose your license, your job, your house, you can even be sent to jail. Not only can u lose everything but your child support will start to build up and instead of paying what you were going to pay monthly, now you are paying much more just to get caught up. Your child deserves to receive support from their custodial parent, so if you owe it, then pay it.
