Child support and incarceration: Important facts to know

What happens to your child support obligation when you're incarcerated? This is something that confuses a lot of people -- and can lead to serious additional complications that can make it harder to get back on your feet once you've served your sentence unless you handle the issue correctly.

Child support: Working together for the good of the children

As a long-standing family law firm serving Livermore and Bay Area families, we have watched many parents struggle with child support issues. Most of the time, both parents want to do right by their children, but feelings of inequity or financial betrayal may muddy the waters. When this happens, the spirit of mutual cooperation crumbles, leaving parents bewildered and children hurt.

The 3 main options for child support payments

You cannot pay child support in California just by giving your ex cash and telling him or her that it's for a support payment. The law says that everyone in the state who is paying support actually needs to send it to the State Disbursement Unit first, and then it is sent out to those who are to receive it. This makes payments easier to track and verify.

It can be hard to get child support from other countries

Technically, a spouse who moves to another country is still supposed to pay child support. Legally, though, it can be very hard to get him or her to pay. The reason is that many countries do not have standing laws and agreements saying they'll help if a spouse flees over the border to avoid payments.
