If a spouse ordered to pay child support is not fulfilling his or her obligation, the state’s most common response is to garnish the non-custodial parent’s wages. The custodial parent may also file for a court hearing in which the non-custodial parent could be subject to jail time or having his or her tax refund withheld to pay the back child support. In order to avoid this complexity, a Certified Financial Divorce Planner can facilitate a settlement that includes provisions to help ensure payment of child support.
