Even though monetary assistance is vital for many custodial parents and while child support is often something that is ordered by the court, some careless and reckless parents refuse to provide their fair share. All involved parties are negatively affected by these actions; the parent who is forced to get by with less money, the children who are not properly provided for, and even the taxpayers who must finance the legal proceedings to mandate the delinquent parents make their child support payments.
Obtaining child support payments can usually be an time consuming and emotionally draining process. There are a number of various tactics that a custodial parent can take advantage of in order to obtain the child support payments that they are owed. The most typical way is to go to a judge and to be granted a court order, which will mandate that a deadbeat dad compensates the custodial parent the amount of child support payments that they owe.

If the deadbeat parent still refuses to abide by the court’s orders to make the payments, some states will permit the courts to garnish earnings, intercept tax refunds, and even suspend the driver’s licenses the deadbeat parent.
