paying off arrears for child support?
if someone was ordered back in 2002 to settle up only 64 dollars a month for child support for one child and he was back roughly 2 years which would be about 2000 something dollars. if he paied 400 dollars a month to pay for the regular support plus arrears would that keep him out of trouble? we live contained by IL. i think in il you have to be rear legs at least 5000 but i just want to be sure he's not going to get into any other trouble and i want those kids to receive support from him.
depends from state to state but in my state if it isn't an arrangement that has been made through and agreed to by the court he is contained by contempt for failure to pay. some states aren't so tough but you need to check beside the clerk of court in the county where the support order is file. i paid up a $2000 arearage over one year on my own and they still came and got me because it wasn't court approved and i still spent the dark in jail and paid a contempt fine.....after a year and after the certainty
Yes, more than likely that will keep your 'ex' out of trouble. If an 'ex' owes you back child support, as long as the character is making some sort of effort to pay off the amount that soul owes you, then chances are very credible that this person who is making payments will be considered to be in good standing beside most Family Courts of Law. Laws varies vary from state-to-state, but some Courts will allow your 'ex' to pay an amount i.e. agreed upon by the two of you in order to keep your 'ex' from individual picked up for non-payment or 'arrears' in child support. Some states are adamant and others are a bit bit easier on the 'ex' who is paying the child support and what amount that the person can afford to pay. As long as the payments do not create a hardship on the 'ex' who is attempting to remuneration back support that is due, chances are that the Court will work near the two of you on these agreed arrangements. However, you will find that most Courts want some form of written agreement between you two to be filed with the Court stating what payments are going to be and when they are going to be paid. All payments have need of be made at your State's Family Law Center, if your 'ex' is expecting to receive credit for all payments that are made. If your 'ex' is making a good faith energy by agreeing to pay $XX.00 per month to you to catch up on the arrears, then the Court may allow the donation arrangement you two have made. Almost all Family Courts usually do not like any form of 'verbal agreements' concerning Child Support, and the Courts almost other want the Child Support arrangements to be made in formal, written agreements that are filed with the Court that have jurisdiction of your case. Not even an attorney can give you a correct answer to this question because Family Laws vary a lot and vary from state-to-state. It would be the most beneficial for you to call and ask the Attorney General surrounded by your State or the Family Court Clerk this question. None of us here can begin to know all of the Family Laws for every single State, and hence, we can not give you a rock solid answer for this question. I hope you get the child support owed to you! Best of luck!
