The consequences of not paying child support
Child support is a series of payments made by the noncustodial parent to support their children. The amount of support is determined by the court during a divorce proceeding and should cover necessities such as food, clothing, medical care, education expenses, and extracurricular or daycare needs. Failure to meet child support obligations can lead to serious consequences, including:
- Child support liens on property
- Criminal warrants
- Civil warrants and fines
- Wage garnishment
- Credit score lowered and more

Setting up equitable child support payments
Regardless of the amount of back child support you owe, do not let the balances scare you from resolving the matter. Many child support payment cases can be resolved in a quick and easy manner by creating equitable payment plans and even arrears forgiveness. However, if the balances are not addressed, the county or state will seize your tax refund, suspend your California driver’s license, report the balances to credit reporting agencies, and file a contempt. At Budget Legal Center, we strive to ensure your livelihood and ability to provide for your kids isn’t affected by the court. We’ve helped countless clients:
- Retain their driver’s licenses
- Maintain their credit scores
- Secure lower child support payments
- Pay off reduced amounts of arrears payments
