Is it ever okay to not pay child support?

The short answer to the question posed in this headline is: no. Failing to pay child support is a serious problem. It can lead to a range of severe penalties, from license suspension and passport denial to fines and possible jail time. California laws require parents to comply with child support orders on time and in full.

Child support 101: Know the basics of paying and receiving support

Ending a marriage or serious relationship as a parent is not easy; especially when you are splitting from your child's other parent. Under these circumstances, you may be ending a romantic, intimate relationship, but you will still be connected to one another through your child.

When can mothers be ordered to pay child support?

Let's face it, child support payments are largely paid by men. Fathers who are not primary custodial parents and commonly have a higher income than mothers who need the support payments to defray the costs of raising a child. However, this does not mean that all fathers will be ordered to pay support in the midst of a divorce or in a custody action between unmarried parents.

Out-of-state case illustrates unique child support issue

Most people already know that when it comes to common legal issues, every state has a law in place to help resolve matters. Take for example child support guidelines. Every state has its own set of rules that determine who should pay, how much and for how long. Few people, however, know just how different laws can differ between states.
