What Are The Pros And Cons Of Dropping Child Support Settlement With The The Custodial Parent.

  • By: David Bliven, Esq.
  • Published: December 28, 2016

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.
