Financial support

Child support is the financial support paid by parents to support a child, or children when parents do not have full custody of them. Child support can be offered by parents voluntarily, or mandated by court order, or through an administrative agency, depending on the state/province of the legal action surrounding child support. A non-custodial parent, the parent who does not have primary care, custody, or control of the child, or children has an obligation to the custodial parent, the parent who has primary care, custody and control of the child, or children. A non-custodial parent pays child support to a custodial parent for the care and support of children from a relationship that has been terminated, or in cases of out-of-wedlock birth. There are cases where child support is paid to someone other than a parent, but that person has to be designated as the guardian of the child to receive child support payments on behalf of the child. A child support attorney at The Bobb Law Firm PLLC can make certain that the proper documents have been filed with the court when there is an assigned guardian to a child in lieu of one of their parents.

The collection of child support can positively affect a family and may increase the possibility of more involvement from the non-custodial parent. Household financial stability continues to effectuate positive results on a child’s academic achievements and cognitive development in younger children.
