Different ways child support can be paid

Raising a child is not an easy thing to do, but it can be especially hard when you have to do it alone. Parents do have the option to be present in the child's life and form a relationship with their son or daughter, but they do not have a choice when it comes to them needing to contribute financially, which is why many parents request child support. Should a parent wish to receive child support from the other parent of their child, there are a number of ways this can be done.

The following are the ways a parent may pay child support:

  • Parent is court ordered to pay child support.
  • Parents agree on a child support arrangement outside of court.
  • Parents participate in alternative dispute resolution.

Depending on how well the parents get along, it may be more appealing for them to sit down and have an informal negotiation about child support. If parents go this route, having an attorney present may prove of great benefit. Since informal negotiations don't involve a judge or the courts, parents may be more open to agreeing to an amount for child support because they do not want to deal with letting someone else decide for them.

Children are the responsibility of both parents, so when one parent is asked to pay child support, it is only right that they do. Any parent having issues with the other parent of their child agreeing to pay child support may want to contact an attorney. If they do not want to pay on their own, it is possible for you to take them to court and get a judge to award you child support. An attorney can assist with the process.
