Act quickly if you fall behind with child support

Keeping up with child support obligations can be a challenge and it is one that parents in South Carolina are not always able to meet. Unfortunately, the further behind with payments you fall, the worse things get. Furthermore, unlike other debts, child support obligations cannot be discharged by filing for bankruptcy. As the amount you owe grows, you could face the suspension of your driving license, or even be taken to jail.

However, if you feel that you are unable to make your monthly payments, it is vital to report the matter as quickly as possible. Child support obligations are not intended to ruin your life. After all, it is far better for your child to receive some financial support than none at all and it does not benefit anyone to have you put in a position where you cannot work to pay off your debts.

As this article on child support explains, you may be able to file for a modification to your support obligations. The court will take your circumstances into account and may be able to review your monthly payments. By doing this, you are showing your willingness to do your bit, while also looking out for your own well-being.

It may seem like a lot to take on, but an attorney may be able to help you. He or she can evaluate your circumstances and may be able to assist you in ensuring that the court understands why you are struggling to keep up with payments. Your attorney may also be able to help you seek other forms of assistance with the cost of living.
