Many parties may contribute to child support enforcement

Not every family in South Carolina has the same composition. Although many people initially think of a family as having two parents and one or more children, this is actually a comparatively uncommon occurrence. Some children grow up with just one parent, while others may have step-parents, donor parents or a number of other arrangements. Whatever the case, the most important thing is that every child grows up with the love and support that he or she deserves.

One way the courts aim to ensure this happens is to impose child support obligations usually on non-custodial parents. The reasoning behind this is that even if a parent has no contact with his or her child, they are still contributing to that child's upbringing. However, it is far from a simple process and many considerations are taken into account when determining child support.

One of the main factors will be the income of each parent, the number of children to whom the payments apply and the specific needs of those children. Of course, although the aim is to make these obligations fair and manageable, the system is not flawless.

If you are struggling to keep up with what you owe, you may be tempted to put off your payments. However, as this article on family law explains, the child support agency, along with the court itself, can implement measures to take the sum owed directly from your income.

In general, it is better to attempt to appeal the arrangement and attempt to reach a more manageable agreement. An attorney can advise you on your options and may be able to help you work toward a more affordable monthly sum or a payment plan to help you clear your debts.
