Child Support Question:

I
currently pay
child
support
and it is deducted
from my check weekly for arrearages. If they are withholding from my paycheck,
can any more child support be taken from my bank account? Can I instead pay in
lump sums?

Answer from Cordell & Cordell
Mens Divorce Lawyer Will Halaz:

Wage
withholding is one of the most common ways to pay
child
support arrearages
. From your
question it sounds like you would like to pay a lump sum to remove all or most
of your arrearages.

Where
I practice, if the custodial parent wishes to take a lump sum now for the past
arrearages, they can file an affidavit of credit for child support payments
stating that they have received payment for the debt owed. This will only
forgive child support owed to the individual though, and not any support which
may be owed the state.

Depending
on how your state operates, once you go into arrearages, the state may pay
child support to the mother and you then owe the state. Your state may have
other ways to pay a lump sum or even a larger amount in each payment to bring
down your arrearages faster.

You
should speak to an attorney in your area immediately if you need additional
legal advice or representation.
