Misconceptions about child support

46651051_S.jpgSome Missouri parents may resent paying child support, but there are strategies parents can take to protect themselves financially.

How to resolve issues about child support payments

112464301_S.jpgNoncustodial parents in Missouri are generally obligated to provide support for their children. However, this may become difficult for those who don't have the means to do so financially.

Child support leads to most garnishments in Missouri

111539079_S.jpgAccording to a 2016 study conducted by the ADP Research Institute analyzing anonymous pay data of 12 million American workers, about 7 percent of American workers are having their wages garnished. When an employee's wages are garnished, a court orders an employer to automatically deduct money from the employee's wages in order to pay debt. Wage garnishments affect employees in certain industries and parts of the country more than others. Manufacturing workers in the Midwest have the highest rate of wage garnishment at about 26 percent.

If you are divorcing while your child is in daycare, a child support and family law attorney can help you to seek a fair solution that reflects these costs in the child support formula.
