What are the pros and cons of dropping child support settlement with the the custodial parent.

Q: My daughter is owed over $31,000 in back child support and the father asked me to drop the order by settling for 10,000 and 5 lump sum payments not equaled to what is owed. He has only made 5 payment not equal to the amount issued via the court order which is $600/mth. What would you advise?

A: David's Answer:
He appears to be playing games - if he has $10,000, he should use it to pay down the arrears anyway. The Court can ultimately send him to jail for failing to pay child support - all the more so if the Court finds out he's trying to extort an agreement out of you. Schedule a consult with a White Plains Child Support attorney for more info.
